These short, pasta twists from Casa Rinaldi cook easily and perfectly, and are the perfect partner to many sauces, especially pesto.
Emilia-Romagna Northern Italy


Modern trofie pasta gets its popularity from Liguria, Northern Italy, but it actually originated in a village on the east coast of Genoa. It is now known as a staple in Ligurian cuisine.

Casa Rinaldi Trofie Pasta come in the traditional short, thin, twisted shapes. They could easily be a substitute for penne or fusilli, as they also have grooves that make it easier for sauces to cling.


Trofie pasta and pesto are a match made in pasta heaven! You can use our Genovese basil to make your own delicious pesto, too! Just toss in the basil, some garlic, some pine nuts, a generous sprinkling of Parmesan into a food processor. Add in some salt and Pecorino, then some extra virgin olive oil, and you have yourself a pesto sauce. Mix that in with freshly cooked Casa Rinaldi Trofie Pasta, and that makes for a relatively easy, but very delicious meal.


There is some confusion as to the origin of trofile’s name. Some say it comes from “strufuggliâ,” a Ligurian verb that means, “to rub,” which refers to the method of preparing the pasta, i.e., by rolling or rubbing a small piece of dough onto a pastry board. Others say it comes from another Ligurian word— “strofia,” whose Ancient Greek roots mean “to twist,” which is, of course, also how the pasta is produced.
