“Pastina” is an Italian classification for tiny pieces of pasta, like orzo. They are traditionally used in soups, pilafs, side dishes and stuffed veggies. “Sousamaki” which translates to “sesame seeds” in Greek, are a sister pasta to orzo. They have a petite teardrop shape reminiscent of sesame seeds. At Misko, we have been making traditional Italian-style pasta in Greece since 1927. Work with MIsko Sousamaki as you would any tiny pasta: sautéed in butter or olive oil before adding your cooking liquid, or cooked al dente in boiling water. Sousamaki are a wonderful ingredient for soups: from chicken or tomato soup to minestrone and Italian Wedding Soup. This delicious pasta will impart flavorful chewy goodness to rice or bulgur pilafs. For a delicious base to a main meal – instead of polenta or rice – serve Misko Sousamaki al dente with butter or olive oil, sautéed mushrooms or truffle oil and grated parmesan cheese. This kid-sized pasta is also delicious with tomato sauce and Feta or parmesan cheese. Once you start working your magic with our Sousamaki, you will find its culinary applications are endess.
