Trader Joe’s Pantry: Anelletti Pasta

Cheerios? Tiny rubber bands? Spaghetti-Os? Nope – none of the above. This is Trader Joe’s new anelletti pasta, and we’re smitten.

These little round rings cook up in just 15 minutes, and we found that they had a nice firm al dente texture, and they slip easily over the tines of a fork. They held our sausage and greens very well and we really liked the taste and feel.

Try these in dishes calling for orecchiette or fusilli.
