The term “maccheroni” usually means,especially abroad, a generic type of short, tube-shaped pasta of varying size. It is hollow inside because it absorbs the sauces that accompany it better.
De Cecco Maccheroni are ideal for preparing dishes with or without tomato sauce, with vegetables and served in broth.

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).
Rotelline (tiny cog wheels), just like the bigger version Rotelle, were also created by this tradition and have a round shape with spokes joined to a ridged rim.
Small children love the original, whimsical shape of Rotelline which are excellent for preparing broths and hearty minestrone soups made from pulses and vegetables.
