These square flowers are sturdy, with rippled edges running down their lengths. Francis Ford Coppola makes them using antique bronze molds so their texture is rugged and holds on to the sauce. They're dense and meaty and take a little longer than usual to cook: usually 15 to 18 minutes. Try them with a thick pesto.
