I had this great-looking pasta
I remember many years ago in Italy on holiday, my then just pre-teenage daughter being delighted to find what she termed giggly pasta. To her great disappointment we couldn't find it back in London, until one day I discovered that gigli is another name for campanelle, which I could find. The delight on her face that evening's dinnertime is lodged in my memory.
When I was staying with her this summer on my much delayed trip to England, she served it to me! With a wistful smile on her lips.
