Cannaroni, from the family of short, straight cut, ridged pasta, do not have a specific place of origin, although it is presumed that this pasta originated in Campania.
The name Cannaroni refers to the specific shape which is similar to a large barrel or the throat, called "cannarone" in Neapolitan dialect.
Cannaroni are often used for oven-baked dishes and are very good with meat based ragù or tomato sauces.

Some people claim that Pipe can be traced back to the times of Roman cooking while others maintain that this type of pasta originated more generically from the central-southern part of Italy.
Pipe Rigate are a delicious variation of the Lumaca (snail) shape pasta which, thanks to the double-ended opening and the distinctive ridges, are perfect for mixing up with and capturing less dense, more liquid sauces.
Pipe Rigate are especially good with ragù sauces made from pork or beef, sausages or mushrooms. This pasta is also perfect for summer dishes with light sauces made from fresh tomatoes and mozzarella, or oven-baked dishes.
