Most people do not associate pasta with desserts, but this unusual recipe is very much a part of the Umbrian culinary tradition, and the texture of pasta works perfectly with the sweet, nutty sauce. It was created to be a part of the Vigilia (Christmas Eve) feast, in times when this special festive meal had a formal, ceremonial atmosphere. All over Italy, the main Christmas meal takes place on Christmas Eve, either after midnight mass or before the mass, depending on the regional custom. It is usually served cold.
