The term “maccheroni” usually means,especially abroad, a generic type of short, tube-shaped pasta of varying size. It is hollow inside because it absorbs the sauces that accompany it better.
De Cecco Maccheroni are ideal for preparing dishes with or without tomato sauce, with vegetables and served in broth.

Mezzi Tubetti Lisci (smooth half tubes) are a smaller variation of the classic Tubetti Lisci and are part of the very short, dry, straight cut, smooth pasta family from southern Italy.
The shape is what gives this pasta its name because it resembles small tubes.
Mezzi Tubetti Lisci are recommended for preparing soups with beans or lentils, or vegetable broths.
This pasta is also excellent for preparing very delicate pasta dishes with light tomato and basil sauces.
