Here Are Ina Garten's 2 Favorite Brands Of Dried Pasta
By Jess Jeziorowski
Ina Garten has become known for her repertoire of easy everyday pasta recipes and two of her favorite brands of dried pasta are De Cecco and Cipriani.
De Cecco is Garten's go-to brand for many of her humbler pasta recipes, but for dishes that call for a little more pizzazz, Ina Garten opts for Cipriani.
De Cecco pasta has a cruder texture that helps sauces stick to the pasta shapes, and it's also useful when making sauces that require pasta water.
Cipriani is an artisanal pasta brand founded at a restaurant in Venice in the 1930s. It cooks like handmade fresh pasta and pairs well with ingredients like sea urchin or truffles.
