Vesuvio - 6 Pack

Two-time James Beard Award-winner Dan Pashman, creator and host of The Sporkful food podcast, has teamed up again with the artisans at Sfoglini, this time to bring you Vesuvio. The shape takes inspiration from Mount Vesuvius, the volcano that towers over Naples and once buried Pompeii. A more modern creation, Vesuvio can be found in many shops where the volcano casts its shadow, but it’s rarer beyond.
Like all shapes in The Sporkful Collection, Vesuvio maximizes the three qualities by which Dan believes all pasta shapes should be judged:
  • Sauceability: How readily sauce adheres to the shape
  • Forkability: How easy it is to get the shape on your fork and keep it there
  • Toothsinkability: How satisfying it is to sink your teeth into it

You can listen to the story of the revival of these shapes on The Sporkful podcast’s ongoing series, Mission: ImPASTAble" which also told the original story of Pashman’s three-year quest to invent Cascatelli and his work with us to make it a reality.

Vesuvius Pasta

The pasta was great and my wife made a great pasta salad for our neighborhood party and everyone loved it.


Love in a box

My favorite pasta shape!

Since ordering this a few months ago, it's become my favorite shape. It holds sauce wonderfully, is a nice sized bite, and has some heft to it. I hope Sfoglini keeps it around, I hadn't noticed how much a pasta shape can affect the meal until I tried vesuvio.

Another Great Shape!

We just got our big box of pasta and immediately gave Vesuvio a try. I loved it! The smooth spiral tubes had a fun mouth-feel and they soaked up the sauce really well. They are more dense than Cascateli, so the one pound only filled the box up 2/3 full and could have used a smaller pot. I really salted the water and that made it delicious. I'm glad it came in a 6-pack because I am already excited about the next time we eat it.
