Racchette (rackets) are an original and exclusive shape from the De Cecco range of pasta. They belong to the short, whimsical pasta family.
Racchette excellent just with tomato sauce, but are particularly good in recipes with ragùs made from meat, mushrooms, or with condiments made with vegetables.

Pasta shapes that resemble small animals found in the garden or in fields are not uncommon.
The origins of Galletti (cockerels) are uncertain, but may well come from the Liguria region.
The shape is the same as Chifferi Rigati with the addition of a crimped line along the top edge that resembles a cockerel's crest.
The double-ended opening and the distinctive ridges mean that this pasta is perfect with less dense, more liquid sauces, all of which are captured inside it.
Galletti are excellent just with a simple tomato sauce, but are also delicious with sauces made from beef or pork or vegetables.
