Paccheri are a typical pasta from the Campania region. The name comes from "paccarià" which in Neapolitan dialect means "slap". Probably in popular tradition it was a reference to the large, heavy consistency. This pasta is popular in other regions as well, albeit with different names.
It is recommended for preparing pasta dishes served with dense, hearty meat ragùs such as Neapolitan ragù which works its way inside the pasta and fills it with flavour.
Alternatively, it can be enjoyed in oven-baked dishes with cheese and tomato sauce or rich fish sauces.

Conchiglie Rigate (ridged shells), which originate from the Campania region, are now very popular all over Italy.
The name comes from the shape which resembles a seashell and is one of the most popular pasta shapes because it can capture any kind of sauce.
This pasta is especially good in oven-baked recipes, with fish or meat sauces, as well as being excellent when accompanied by light tomato sauces, with ricotta or pesto alla genovese
