Stringozzi [striŋˈɡɔttsi] or Strangozzi [straŋˈɡɔttsi] is an Italian wheat pasta, among the more notable of those produced in the region of Umbria.[1][2] The long, rectangular cross-section noodles are made by hand and generally served with the local black truffles, a meat ragù or a tomato-based sauce.[2][3] The name of the pasta is drawn from its resemblance to shoelaces, as stringhe is Italian for strings.[4]
