Scuccuzzu is a small rounded pasta, like a small pearl or pill, that was created when Ligurians moved to an island off the Tunisian coast in the 1500s, they learned to make scuccuzzu as an alternative to couscous. It was introduced to Italy when they moved to Carloforte on an island off the southwestern coast of Sardinia in the 1700s.

This small pasta is most known for its use in all types of soups and broths, but you could experiment as an alternative to couscous, with butter and Parmigiano-Reggiano.
