Casareccia is originally from Sicily, but is also characteristic of other southern Italian regions.
This pasta is shaped like a small, smooth piece of parchment, rolled up and folded in at the top. The name conjures up its bygone home-made origins, an interpretation of the Arab-style "pasta busiata" obtained with the thin stem of a plant around which pieces of dough were at one time wrapped.
Casareccia is very good with classic ragù, although the smooth, slightly porous surface is also ideal for capturing all types of sauces, from traditional ones to even the simplest of sauces.

Rigatoncello is a smaller, fun version of the classic Rigatoni from the Rome tradition, and is perfect for making pasta dishes with sauces or oven-baked dishes. This type of pasta is excellent with pork or beef ragù, slow-cooked stews, or meat and mushroom sauces. It is really tasty with tomato sauces and with vegetables, such as aubergines and peppers.
