Torchio, meaning "press" in Italian, is shaped as a grill or hydraulic press. The torch-like shape, also known as campane ("bells"), has different textures when cooked and will cup sauce beautifully.
This delicious seasonal version of our classic Torchio Pasta is prepared with pumpkin, for a special treat. We love making baked macaroni and cheese with Pumpkin Torchio, using white cheddar, gruyere, and parmesan. The color of the pumpkin pasta is just beautiful, even with the mix of white cheeses!
