Simple Fresh Pasta Version No. 5: Garganelli

Simple Fresh Pasta Version No. 5: Garganelli

The roundness of this short pasta makes it so adorable! You can make the ridges easily using a sushi mat. It's pointed tips are the distinguishing feature.

Ingredients: 1-2 servings

Bread (strong) flour
100 g
Olive oil
1 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon
Lukewarm water
50 ml
Sushi mat


1. Prepare the pasta dough using Recipe ID: 2140040.
2. Roll the dough into a 1.5-cm thick baton shape. Cut the dough into 1 cm strips and leave the dough to dry for about 3 minutes, so that it doesn't stick to the sushi mat.
3. Press a piece of pasta down onto the sushi mat using your thumb.
4. With a little bit of force, you should be able to easily roll the pasta into shape by rolling it away from you.
5. And it's done! Adorable!
6. If rolling the pasta is too difficult, simply use the sushi mat to make the ridges.
7. Try this pasta deliciously combined with some Arrabbiata with Melted Cheese (Recipe ID: 2200114.)
8. I changed the recipe title from "Penne". Another user taught me the correct name.
9. Garganelli is very similar to penne, but apparently penne has to be perfectly cylindrical.

Story Behind this Recipe

I tried rolling some macaroni around chopsticks, but it was an epic failure. Then, I had a flash of brilliance to use a sushi mat to easily roll them.
