Borella Bigoli de Bassan is a type of pasta originating from the Veneto region of Italy.
Bigoli is a thick, long pasta similar in shape to spaghetti but with a wider diameter.
It is traditionally made from a dough of flour and water and is often associated with the town of Bassano del Grappa in Veneto.
The pasta dough for Bigoli de Bassan is typically made using durum wheat semolina, which gives it a distinctive flavor and color. It is extruded through a special tool called a bigolaro, which resembles a press with a large, coarse die. This process creates thick, rough-textured pasta strands that are ideal for holding onto thick sauces, such as duck or game ragù, which are common pairings for Bigoli de Bassan.
Bigoli de Bassan is a regional specialty and it is not as widely available as some other types of pasta, but it can be a delicious and unique addition to your pasta repertoire.
