View Full Version : Where can I buy this pasta?

05-01-2006, 10:39 PM
I have looked practically everywhere, I would like to know where I can purchase Mafalda pasta? I would prefer a nationally known store if at all possible. I tried Kroger and a few other places but haven't found it yet. I want to make a skillet lasagna and know that I can substitute campanelle pasta for the mafalda but would really like to find this pasta. TIA.

in Pennsylvania we have San Giorgio Company that sells mafalda. I looked on their website and they have it listed but no recipes for it. You are looking for where to buy it, we have Giant grocery store but no Kroegers~ I guess this didn't help :confused: .

Here's some info from food subs:


mafalde Pronunciation: ma-FALL-duh Notes: These are flat, rectangular noodles with ruffles along both edges. The singular form is mafalda. Includes mafaldine (pictured at left). Substitutes: lasagnette OR tagliatelle OR fettucine

I am not able to find the Mafalde pasta either, I just look for the widest egg noodle I can find, and after it is cooked it swells up just fine. Or you could try breaking up lasagna noodles. :D

I know you asked for national stores, so forgive me if this is no help whatsoever, but I wanted to say that I've seen mafalde - but mostly in funky little specialty foods shops. Not necessarily "fancy" stores, but ones that sell lots of imported foods and cheese. Say, what about Cost Plus/World Market??

I found some of this at (of all places) Grocery Outlet (http://www.groceryoutlets.com/) recently.

If you run out of luck in your neighborhood, you might consider trying this:

It is a fun pasta to cook with and kids love it because of its shape.

Happy cooking!

I just saw it at Cost Plus. It is in the Italian food section with the rest of the dry pastas. The brand name was Francis Coppola. It's like noodle ribbons (just like mini-width lasagne) -- as long but only about an inch wide with curly edges. I instantly thought of your thread & couldn't believe I saw it when I wasn't even looking for it.

I have to do some shopping this weekend. I will look then. Thank you, everyone.

We're always on the leading edge :p . We must have special radar for the out of the ordinary. I haven't read any recipes using it. Did I miss something?

Creamette's makes Mafalda noodles and I saw them this past week in Trigs supermarket in Rhinelander Wisconsin, sorry they are a small local chain but try contacting the manufacture.
