Crozet pasta originated in the Savoie region of France, located in the French Alps. The other name for this region? “The other country of pasta!” (Italy being the country of pasta.) Shaped in tiny squares like Chex Mix, this countryside pasta is particularly delicious when cooked with gratin (that’s melted cheese, for anyone wondering). A new trendy dish called “Croziflette” has recently made this pasta popular again. It’s a tartiflette (a hot dish of layers of cheese, potatoes, lardons, and onions) where the potatoes have been replaced with crozets au sarrasin, just like Alpina’s. Enlivened with Reblochon cheese, lardons, and onions, making a tartiflette with crozets is sure to please.
The Alpina brand originated in Chambéry where it was created in 1844.
