Cavatelli in Seattle?

deleomeyer Mar 29, 2009 04:51 PM

I am in search of dried cavatelli! In case it is new to you, it is a great, hearty pasta that is usually hand-crafted. I've had it in Chicago, where it was called "eight-finger cavadill." The eight fingers refers to the way it is made-- thin strips of pasta lightly rolled with the tips of all eight fingers. If any one can tell me where I can purchase cavatelli in Seattle, I would be most grateful!

    I don't know if this helps you or not, but I've found strozzapreti, Montebello brand, at Cost Plus World Markets.

      Ask at Big John's PFI, and if they don't know ask at DeLaurenti, Pappardelle's Pasta.

        I had checked at DeLaurenti's and was surprised they did not have it. I had not thought about PFI and will check--thanks for the lead. I don't know about Papparedelle's pasta, but will check it out! Thank you.
