Quick Overview

Trofie is an Italian pasta traditionally made with Italian durum wheat semolina.

This type of pasta was born in the Liguria region of Italy, but is also very popular in other parts of the country.

Traditionally, the Trofie pasta is made with a small rolling pin and is twisted into a spiral shape.

The flavor of trofie is mild and slightly nutty, making it a great option for a variety of dishes.

It pairs especially well with pesto and other intensely flavored sauces.

The shape of the pasta also lends itself to being tossed in a light sauce, as the twists and turns of the trofie help the sauce to cling to the pasta.
