Some people claim that Pipe can be traced back to the times of Roman cooking while others maintain that this type of pasta originated more generically from the central-southern part of Italy.
Pipe Rigate are a delicious variation of the Lumaca (snail) shape pasta which, thanks to the double-ended opening and the distinctive ridges, are perfect for mixing up with and capturing less dense, more liquid sauces.
Pipe Rigate are especially good with ragù sauces made from pork or beef, sausages or mushrooms. This pasta is also perfect for summer dishes with light sauces made from fresh tomatoes and mozzarella, or oven-baked dishes.
Available in 500g and 3 Kg packs.
Spaccatella originally comes from Sicily and is part of the whimsical, dried pasta family.

Spaccatella is excellent for preparing pasta dishes served with light sauces made from tomatoes, but also goes really well with meat ragù.
