A Brand New Pasta Shape - Cascatelli by Sporkful from Sfoglini

One of my favorite podcasts, The Sporkful, released a new pasta shape called Cascatelli.

The podcast tells food stories, and the host has talked about the various qualities of pasta that appeal to him. 


He created a small sub-series on how he went from concept to execution on a perfect pasta shape.

I really enjoy this podcast, and it was very interesting to hear about the process of getting a pasta shape made - and it's a genius marketing ploy. Was the whole series an effort to tell a story? Or sell a product? Or both.

Either way, I was hooked. And at the end, I wanted to try the pasta shape. It was backordered and so many types were sold out that I purchase the only available one available: a 5 lb. bulk bag.

"From the mind of James Beard Award winner Dan Pashman, creator and host of The Sporkful food podcast, comes CASCATELLI (Italian for “waterfalls”). Three years in the making, this brand new shape was created in collaboration with the artisans at Sfoglini. Cascatelli is designed to maximize the three qualities by which Dan believes all pasta shapes should be judged:

- Sauceability: How readily sauce adheres to the shape
- Forkability: How easy it is to get the shape on your fork and keep it there
- Toothsinkability: How satisfying it is to sink your teeth into it

Listen to the story of Dan’s quest to create this shape in a special Sporkful series entitled “Mission: ImPASTAble,” available in your podcasting app or at Sporkful.com. And try cascatelli today to experience the next chapter in pasta history!"
