Tripoline, a long ribbon pasta with one wavy edge, are part of the long, curled, dried pasta family. This type of pasta may well have originated from the Campania region.
According to popular tradition, it was created in honour of king Victor Emmanuel II in Naples.
Its particular shape means that the curled part retains more sauce than the smooth part. One of the characteristics of all curled pasta is that, once cooked, the two surfaces have a different consistency.
Tripoline are excellent for preparing pasta dishes with meat ragùs. The recommended sauces should definitely include all those with strong, marked flavours, such as sauces prepared with game and offal.

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.
