Simple Fresh Pasta No. 13 (Conchiglie)

Simple Fresh Pasta No. 13 (Conchiglie)

I'm posting this for my own records. This is a shell-shaped short pasta with ridges, called conchiglie.


Your choice of pasta dough
Sushi mat


1. Prepare the pasta dough. For instructions on how to make pasta dough and for various sauces, please see (Recipe ID: 2140040).
2. Roll the dough into a long, thin log, then cut into small pieces.
3. Place a slice of the dough on a sushi mat with the cross-cut facing up.
4. Press down on the center with your thumb, roll it away from you, then press it toward you.
5. Gently roll it back in place, then press in the opposite direction, then it's complete.
6. Here's how the surface should look.
7. This is the underside. The sauce will easily fill the ridges and cavity to make a delicious pasta.
8. I used it the next day and topped it with an avocado & tomato with soy sauce and wasabi dip. I kneaded cocoa powder into the pasta dough.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love pasta. I wondered if I could make some using a sushi mat, so I gave it a shot.
