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.

Lasagnette are consumed all over Italy and are part of the long, flat pasta family.
Their shape is particularly suited to the preparation of recipes based on tomato sauce with aromatic herbs or meat-based sauces.
They also go really well with spicy condiments or seafood sauces.
In the culinary tradition of the Liguria region, they are excellent for the preparation of first courses based on pesto.
