Capellini

Originally from the centre-north of Italy, the name Capellini means light hair, or childrens hair. In fact they are also known as Angel Hair or Venus Hair, for their delicate and elegant shape.

Shape

Capellini are long, golden strips of pasta, with a slim and almost fragile structure. In reality, they hold their shape even in the hottest broth. But it's in dry recipes that they give their best, enhancing all the flavours of the ingredients, embracing them in their long hug. 

A touch more

Capellini are best in light sauces, which suit their lightness of shape. A simple sauce based on fresh tomato, oil and basil is perfect. For a more intriguing dish, Barilla suggests Capellini with olive pate' and clams, a fragranced dish enriched with the most elegant flavours of Mediterranean cuisine. Do not forget try them in pasta-bake dishes, in which they keep their shape and are beautifully presented. Also try them in broths as they will be able to add flavour to every recipe.
