Orecchiette

A shape of pasta very popular in Apulia Italy. It translates into "little ears" and is a small round pasta with a slight cupped shape. It is ideal for holding sauce or flavored oils in the "cup" of the pasta.

 

Called Recchietelle in Italian and Orechiette in Apulian dialect, this macaroni product resembles an auditory appartatus and looks like an indented disk.
