Cannolicchi are tight twists of pasta that are made to resemble the razor clams living in the Adriatic Sea. The pasta holds its beautiful shape when cooked, capturing sauce in the middle. Keep with the oceanic theme and serve these with clams, mussels or any shellfish, or use in fish soup in place of potatoes. Cannolicchi are also wonderful with pesto and string beans cut to the same length as the pasta tubes.
