Candele Spezzate (broken candles) are a delicious variety of Candele, originally from the south of Italy, and their name and shape are derived from the candles that were carried during religious processions.
This pasta is excellent 'au gratin' and perfect for capturing and soaking up all the sauce.

Among the countless versions of maccherone, apparently Sedani were first created in Naples with a smooth shape and the name "denti di elefante" (elephant's tooth), and later acquired the grooved pattern like the ridges on celery, according to some from Tuscany, and the change in the original name.
Sedani Rigati (ridged version) go very well with elaborate condiments such as ragùs made from meat and mushrooms or sausage, but they are equally as good for preparing oven-baked dishes or simply with tomato and basil.
