Sauces love all pasta, but this type is irresistible to them! Thanks to their hollow shape, they are ideal for the sauce to “nest” inside and feel safe to be 100%… sauce, creating a full, intense flavor, a perfect match for small pieces of red beef, for delightfully tasteful explosions to satisfy even the most demanding palates.
At Misko, we have been making traditional Italian-style pasta in Greece since 1927. A thinner version of no.2 Macaroni and a sister pasta to bucatini, no.3 Macaroni are long thick strands of pasta with a hole in the middle. Misko no.3 Macaroni is traditionally used to make “Makaronia me Kima.” It contains a “Greek Bolognese” sauce with a chili-like consistency that is spooned over the noodles. Each family has their own version of this classic dish, made a tomato and ground meat sauce, seasoned with cinnamon, allspice and cloves – and topped with Mizithra, Kefalotyri or Parmesan cheese. Misko no.3 Macaroni is delicious in Macaronatha Pasta with octopus, calamari or shrimp. Once you start working your culinary magic with our no.3 Macaroni, you will find they are a wonderful blank canvas for a host of red, white and olive-oil based sauces.
