Gramigna are a uniquely shaped type of pasta. Tubular and rounded with a crook at one end, some say they resemble the first shoots of growing plants. The name “gramigna” comes from the Italian word for a curly grass that grows in Emilia-Romagna, a Northern Italian province. Their shape makes them perfect in light sauces. In this dish, you’ll cook them with garlic, shallot and finish them with butter and Pecorino cheese. It’s wholesome, and wholly delicious.
