Fagottini Pasta
Try these cute little "bundles" of goodness

Fagottini with fresh tomatoes and basil.

Fagottini is a type of pasta, as shown in the photo. In the middle ages, a bundle or purse was known as a “fagot” in French; the derogatory meaning came later. It might be also called sacchetti or fiochetti on a menu.

Fagottini are little stuffed bundles, cute as a bug’s ear, as they say. In this case the fatottini were stuffed with “agrumi” or the outer skins shavings of citrus fruits along with ricotta cheese.

They are most often found in the regions of Lombardy and Emilia Romagna.
