I was at the market this past weekend and one of the items on my grocery list was pasta. Well, I love Barrilla's pasta (and their variety of shapes and flavors) and noticed that they have a new line of pastas. They are 'mini' pastas called 'Piccolini' and come if five shapes: Farfalle, Fusilli, Penne, Ziti and Wheels!
So many recipes truly could use smaller sized pasta! Well, if you like to to experiment with cooking like I do or you just want to have fun mixing and matching shapes in pasta salads, macaroni, soups, etc., then you should keep these in mind. I would venture to bet that children would love the size and shapes, too.
The bonus is that they were on sale because they're a new item, so I stocked up ;-)

That's so funny, I love these too!
Thanks linnie b ;-)
I have been buying these and they come in handy for many recipes.
These new ones are a perfect size for little kids.
