Pettole Abruzzesi are a typical pasta shape from the rural culinary tradition of the Abruzzo region, also known as "the meal of desire". The pasta is a variety of "sagne" cut into diamond shapes and widely used in the mountain districts. De Cecco recommends trying it with bean soups, with chickpeas and black truffle, or with fresh anchovies and green beans.

From the beginning of the twentieth century, many forms of pasta have been inspired by mechanics and the automotive industry, such as Radiatori (radiators) or Lancette (clock hands).
Rotelle (cog wheels) are also a result of this tradition and have a round shape with spokes joined to a ridged rim.
Enjoy them served with tomato sauce with or without meat, or alternatively this pasta is perfect in broth and minestrone soups.
Try them when preparing delicious, colourful pasta salads.
