Inspired by the golden jewels once worn by the noble women of Southern Italy, Anelli Giganti – “giant rings” in English – is a circular shaped pasta cut recalling the splendid golden bracelets typically worn during special events. Originally from Sicily region, this pasta became highly popular among the inhabitants of Campania with the name “calamarata”, from the Italian word “calamaro” which means squid (in fact, its silhouette resembles a sliced squid).
To enjoy Anelli Giganti at its best, serve this ring-shaped pasta with a gourmet Datterini tomatoes sauce enriched with tender squid loops: a touch of Neapolitan tradition at home!
