Gnocchi are originally from Campania and were created from the imagination of the pasta-makers who, while remaining true to the tradition of semolina pasta, took their inspiration from the classic potato gnocchi.
Gnocchi have a distinctive concave, ribbed shape and are excellent for capturing and bringing out the best in denser sauces, such as Bolognese sauce.
The most popular condiment for Gnocchi is tomato: from a simple tomato and basil sauce to the heartiest meat sauces, but they are also very good served with pesto.

Pasta shapes that resemble small animals found in the garden or in fields are not uncommon.
Funghini look like tiny mushrooms and are fun especially for children who associate them with the animal kingdom.
Funghini are best used in broths, or in vegetable or bean soups. This pasta is also excellent for preparing very delicate pasta dishes with light tomato and basil sauces.
