Sanmarti, a premium pasta producer from Catalonia is known for its quality pastas around the world. Famous for quality pasta, their starchy creations are sought-after by many purveyors. But something that may often be overlooked by serious culinarians is their Lletres, or alphabet letters, pasta shaped.
Often associated with children and children’s dishes, adults and the mature often glance over this whimsical pasta variant. But this need not be relegated to those of younger years. Indeed, adults and the age-elite may also enjoy this, too. While not thought of as a good pasta to coat in sauce, it can be a great alternative to traditional pastas in many soups. One such soup would be the famous pasta e fagioli. Imagine throwing a dinner party and presenting this delicious, hearty soup filled with Sanmarti’s Lletres! Not only would your bellies delight, but your inner-children would be most pleased by this. Enjoy!
