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.

Fettucine are part of the long, flat pasta family.
It is not easy to establish where this type of pasta originated from, which is popular all over Italy, albeit with different local names. Fettucine were probably originally from Lazio where they are the pride of all regional cooking.
Fettuccine are very versatile and so suitable for a variety of sauces. They are recommended in particular in pasta dishes with tomato and meat ragùs. They are also excellent for preparing fish-based sauces, especially shellfish
