How the hell do you pronounce Strozzapreti? Like this: Stroh-tzuh-pray-tee, strange name we know, but even stranger is what it means, it literally translates to Priest-Strangler! Now don’t let that put you off, there a many legends of how this delicious pasta got its name from glutinous priests to a classic after Church dish, to well a lot darker, but we won’t go there. Hailing from the Tuscan region, Strozzapreti is a traditional style pasta dating back all 100’s of years.
Strozzapreti is so traditional always hand made. The long slithers of pasta a rolls and twisted slightly to make a tube, its also light pasta and rolled thinner than most. Being so light and delicate Strozzapreti is served with traditionally pork dishes, or there is the Sunday favourite of Strozzapreti with Artichoke, no wonder the priest where so gluttonous!
