Well, radiatore they are. And lovely. The packaging of both was a good place to start, authentically Italian looking, looking like good quality pasta, classy-like, with a handy resealable sticker on the bag in case you don't use the whole pack in one go.
Easy to cook, and kept their shape well. That's always my concern with delicate shaped pasta, will it just disintegrate into blobs (messicani, I'm looking at YOU). Holds a sauce well, because of the shape. The radiatore are definitely the sort of pasta shapes to use with a creamy sauce, not one with huge lumps of veg or meat. The grille, and the curve of the back hold the sauce in them, and they taste LUSH.
So there you have it. Pasta is a good thing. Go eat some. Or come round to my house, and I'll make a spag bol.
