It is a shorter version of the classic Rigatoni, which is a typical type of traditional pasta from Rome, that has the characteristic ridged external surface and a large diameter and thickness.
The best condiments for Mezzi Rigatoni are meat or vegetable sauces provided that they are dense enough to work their way inside and be trapped by the ridges. Amazing with fish based recipes.

Pasta Mista (mixed pasta) is a typical pasta from southern Italy, especially from Naples, and has a tradition that has been handed down the generations.
Originally, the women of the house, to use up the leftover pasta, would mix it up to create tasty, appetising soups and the result was so good that this combination has become a new variation.
De Cecco has developed no less than ten varieties of Pasta Mista, both short and long, which is innovative in the pasta market.
