  • Like the name of the Philadelphia restaurant. :-) But you would probably not enjoy dining al fresco there, since (despite how lovely it sounds), it overlooks one of the major downtown avenues. Nothing like bus exhaust in your calamari.

  • girasoli is the plural of girasole.

  • I think the proper Italian name might be girasole (apparently it means "sunflowers" and that is what it looks like). The package I bought it in puts an -i on the enc, but then, it's in Slovene. We should ask Prolagus.

  • Excellent! *yoink*

    April 18, 2009

  • I had a stuffed pasta tonight (pre-packaged) that was called girasoli, shaped like silver-dollar-sized suns and filled with basil, mozzarella and tomato (a little caprese salad). This was new to me, but it was very good.

  • Yum, stuffed wallets...

  • Agnolotti???? Heaven! There's a place in Old Town Alexandria, VA - Landini Brothers - who make an Agnolotti...

  • Well, I think the name I'm thinking of translated roughly as pouches or purses, or coinpurse or something like that. So wallets is not that far off, meaning-wise. They were very small and very very cute. They were ball-shaped on one end, but did have a "gathered" sort of ruffle at the other, i.e. not entirely spherical.

    I consider stuffed pasta prime restaurant food. I try always to order something I'd never make at home (sometimes I fail). Say, if it's between tortellini and rigatoni (in a restaurant), I'll go for the tortellini. Except today, when I got the rigatoni.

  • It sounds like a trade name, since I can hardly imagine an Italian pasta variety named wallets. :-)

    By the way, I never make stuffed pasta either...

    April 18, 2009

  • Well... all right, I'll admit it. I bought a pre-packaged thingie at Trader Joe's. (I never make stuffed pasta at home. I'm far too lazy.) Lemme go look.

    Edit: Not sure I found it. Borsellini? I'll see if they have it next time I'm there.

  • Cappelletti? Agnolotti? Plin?

  • Wikipedia: "A 'purse' or bundle of pasta, made from a round of dough gathered into a ball-shaped bundle, often stuffed with ricotta and fresh pear."

    I think I had some of this recently, with artichoke stuffing, but it wasn't called by this name.
