Anyone who enjoys making pasta by hand will appreciate this paddle that lets you form two different pasta shapes without needing a pasta machine.
You can press and roll small dough portions down its length with your thumb to make gnocchi, or roll thin dough squares around the included wooden rod to create hollow tubes of garganelli. The paddle has a ridged surface that imprints the dough with a crisply defined pattern, creating texture that allows sauce to cling to the finished pasta.
It also has an inclined base that rests on your work surface to provide stability for good control. Made in Italy of solid European beech, this is a good-quality pasta tool.
