From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
When they make tagliatelle, the pasta is rolled and then cut into thin strips to obtain the “tagliatelle.” The left, usually the edges, is cut irregularly to get pieces of pasta completely variable, hence the name. It is primarily the perimeter areas of the sheet; the thickness is also inconsistent. Therefore, they are pieces of egg pasta that differ in shape (rectangle, lozenge, triangle), size, and consistency. Traditionally it is recommended to use the spronella to cut. In Romagna, they are often called puntarine.
The most classic use of maltagliati is with bean soup; however, there are many other recipes.
