Tetrazini is a type of pasta made from durum wheat and has been dried in the oven. It is extremely popular in central Italy, where it is served with many different sauces and toppings.
The name “tetrazzini” means “four times cooked,” referring to how many times the pasta has been boiled before being baked. The process involves boiling the pasta once, then draining it and returning it to its pot. The pot is then placed in an oven preheated to 320 degrees Fahrenheit for about twelve minutes. After this time, the pasta is removed from the pot and served immediately or refrigerated for later use.
It can be served with any number of sauces or toppings; however, it is most often served with meat sauces or cheese sauces such as bolognese or carbonara.
