From an Italian expression of cavare, meaning "to get, to carve," this small pasta has the five thumbprints reminiscent of the motion of getting or grabbing something. The fingerprints are left on the dough from the slight rolling motion of the pasta-maker.
Perfect in soup or with hearty meat or vegetable ragu.
Cooking Time: 15-18 minutes.
