You don’t need fancy pasta-making equipment to create this specialty shape from the small town of Bobbio in the Piacenza province of Emilia-Romagna — just a knitting needle. This unique pasta is traditionally served with a sauce made from slow cooked shredded beef, called stracotto di manzo, and is always served in Bobbio on November 23, the feast day of Saint Columbanus, the patron of the city.

Serves 4 to 6
