trofie

homemade worm-shaped pasta

The classic pasta of Liguria, traditionally trofie were made of chestnut flour, and today you can still find them in Liguria, along with other flavours. The twisted worm shape was originally rolled on the cook’s thighs, but that has become somewhat rare.

Little ones are called troffiette.
