Dei Briganti pasta is a type of pasta that originated in the Italian region of Molise. It is shaped like a large, flat ring with a ruffled or fluted edge, resembling the hats worn by 19th-century guerrilla fighters known as brigands. The name “dei briganti” means “of the brigands” in Italian.

Dei Briganti pasta is traditionally made with semolina flour and water, and it is often bronze cut, which gives it a rough texture that helps it to hold onto sauces. The ruffled or fluted edge is created by pressing the pasta through a bronze die, which also imparts a rustic appearance and a slightly nutty flavor to the pasta.
