Size:2 servings

Canestri go by a few other names (lumache, pipe rigate) but the translation to "basket" seems to be the most accurate descriptor of these ridged beauties. They have a hollow interior larger than rigatoni, and trap the sauce inside and out. You want to eat these with the most crave-able of accompaniments, which for us is our Vodka sauce. Made from a classic slow preparation of melted sweet onions, we add a few dashes of Calabrian chile purée, vodka (the alcohol cooks out), along with crushed San Marzano tomatoes, cream, mascarpone and Lambrusco vinegar.  

2 servings is 12 oz of pasta and 12 oz of sauce.
