    whats the difference among these:

    agnolotti
    ravioli
    capelleti

    they all look like much the same thing, just different sizes and shapes..

    all are buyable from coles etc and im curious ?


    (don't tell me to make my own.. i will eventually, when i move out again)

    I think that they are all the same thing (in that they are small pasta parcels stuffed with filling) but that they originated in different regions of Italy, and as such have different shapes.

    I may have made that up.

    They're all filled pastas:
    Ravioli is usually square, with flat pieces of pasta with the filling sandwiched in between.
    Agnolotti is a smaller version of Ravioli
    Capelleti is from a circular shape, folded over the filling then folded up into a kind've boat/hat shape.

    They're used for different things, ravioli would be mostly with a sauce, but the other two could either be in a sauce, or even a broth.

    They are all from different regions of Italy, but I'm not sure which ones.
