Gnocchi are originally from Campania and were created from the imagination of the pasta-makers who, while remaining true to the tradition of semolina pasta, took their inspiration from the classic potato gnocchi.
Gnocchi have a distinctive concave, ribbed shape and are excellent for capturing and bringing out the best in denser sauces, such as Bolognese sauce.
The most popular condiment for Gnocchi is tomato: from a simple tomato and basil sauce to the heartiest meat sauces, but they are also very good served with pesto.

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.
