What is this?

My grandmother gave me a bag of these. they look like some sort of tomato pasta and they are flat unlike traditional wagon wheels. They are about an inch and a half in diameter. Does anyone know what these are? How do I cook them?

First, Hydeez, welcome to DC.

Now to your question. Without a photo, we can only guess. Based on what you say, you are asking about a type of pasta. Can you be more specific? We'd love to help.

Thanks for the photo, Hydeez. It looks like large wagon wheel pasta to me. It would be good to serve with a chunky sauce to get caught in the "wheel" spaces. Use it any way you might use smaller wagon wheel pasta, but think a little bigger with your pasta ingredients.

Looks good. Will make a great meal.

Hmmm, I don't think it's pasta. It's sold with the peppers in the Mexican produce section of the grocery stores around here. I'd do a little more research before I tried to make it a pasta dish (though it does look and feel like pasta). If I make it to the store today, I'll find the name and uses for you.

I`ve seen something similar to this before, and it was covered in some Mega-Sticky sugar type syrup.

might not be the same thing though.
