Inspired by conversations on the Food52 Hotline, we're sharing tips and tricks that make navigating all of our kitchens easier and more fun.
Today: Next up in Mario Batali's How To Tuesdays: An unexpected pasta shape that might just become your new favorite.
This is no ordinary pasta -- and that's why you should make it. Garganelli is practical like penne and rustic like tagliatelle, and since it's not a common shape, dinner guests will be floored. Don't be afraid to experiment with different sauces -- try it with Fennel and Veal Sausage, or baked into cheesy goodness wth pumpkin and pancetta. Bonus? You get to use a pencil.
Watch Chef Cruz Goler of Lupa Osteria Romana in New York City show us how it's done!
