Croxetti

An example of the Italian pasta is the ancient “Croxetti” cut. This pasta originated in Middle Age. The cooks of noble Ligurian families used to press a thin sheet of pasta between two wooden moulds engraved with the family arms on one side and other symbols on the other side. As the image of a cross was often impressed, this pasta started to be called croxetti. Still nowadays, for weddings or other events, people in Liguria use to commission to artisan carpenters some wooden moulds with initials or other decorations. Housewives then prepare the croxetti one by one. The croxetti beautifully combine with the typical Ligurian sauces: pesto sauce, walnut sauce, pine-seed sauce, fish sauce.
