Gramigna, which originated in Emilia Romagna, is a type of pasta similar to a short bucatino which has been slightly twisted. Its shape resembles the tiny seed of one of the most common grasses.
Gramigna is traditionally accompanied by sausage based sauces or Bolognese ragù. In general, all meat and tomato based sauces go well with this type of pasta.

Bucatini (also called Perciatelli) are originally from Naples and have an elongated shape with a round cross section and are hollow inside.
Bucatini all'Amatriciana are famous with tomato sauce, pork cheek and a sprinkling of pecorino romano (sheep's cheese).
This type of pasta is quite versatile and also excellent with sauces made with butter, meat or fish.
Bucatini are perfect with vegetable sauces too that are prepared with a tomato sauce with peppers, aubergines, courgettes, olives and capers.
