Rigatoni, which is a typical type of traditional pasta from Rome, have the characteristic ridged external surface and a large diameter and thickness.
The shape is particularly versatile and is perfect with a variety of tomato or vegetable sauces, but the best condiments are sauces made from meat: slow-cooked sauces with meat and mushrooms, made from beef and pork, sausage or giblets. The recipe with pajata (calf intestines) is a classic dish.
Any type of sauce that is sufficiently liquid to get inside the pasta and be trapped by the ridges is recommended.

Spaghettoni, a bigger, chunkier variation of the classic Spaghetti, are especially good with dishes that have a strong, marked taste or for recipes that have to be tossed in the frying pan. This pasta is excellent with courgette flowers, lamb sauce, chicken livers or shellfish.
