Cannaroni, from the family of short, straight cut, ridged pasta, do not have a specific place of origin, although it is presumed that this pasta originated in Campania.
The name Cannaroni refers to the specific shape which is similar to a large barrel or the throat, called "cannarone" in Neapolitan dialect.
Cannaroni are often used for oven-baked dishes and are very good with meat based ragù or tomato sauces.

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.
