These little elongated shells — “little hollows,” translated from the Italian — have a heartier feel that’s just right for fall, and so is the way they’re served at Locale Italian Kitchen + Craft Cocktails, 7995 Blue Diamond Road: with butternut squash, sage brown butter sauce, coffee-roasted pepita seeds and whipped ricotta, $15.
