I use acini di pepe pasta to make a cold fruit type pasta. The package I use is made by DaVinci, of Italy. Is is made of 100 % durum wheat semolina, what ever duram wheat is. Didn't look that up. The pasta is a really tiny circular macaroni type stuff, about 1/4th of an inch in length, with a hold about the size of a pin. Adding to boiling water, it takes 4-6 minutes to cook, so not a very sizeable item. Good to stretch a fruit salad.
Pasta in the shape of bow ties.
It originated from many places, but the more popular place was Italy, and France in general.
