Gigli is a typical Tuscan pasta made from Tuscan durum wheat in the traditional artisanal way. Gigli pasta is made using the so-called “Bronze-drawn” method, in which the pasta is pressed into its shape faster than normal. In the method, the paste has a special, slightly rougher structure than usual and is dried at a low temperature. Due to the roughness, however, the pasta absorbs more of the sauce’s flavors. The cooking time of Gigli pasta is only 4 minutes, and it is particularly suitable for fast-growing vegetable- or meat-based portions.
