Paccheri Rigati are a typical pasta from the Campania region. The name comes from "paccarià" which in Neapolitan dialect means "slap". Probably, in popular tradition, it was a reference to the large, heavy consistency. This pasta is popular in other regions as well, albeit with different names.
It is recommended for preparing pasta dishes served with dense, hearty meat ragùs such as Neapolitan ragù which works its way inside the pasta and fills it with flavour.
Alternatively, it can be enjoyed in oven-baked dishes with cheese and tomato sauce or rich fish sauces.

Conchigliette Lisce, a smaller, smooth variation of the classic Conchiglie Rigate, are a whimsical shape and have always been considered a great pasta for any kind of sauce for all the family because children love it too thanks to its shape inspired by small, attractive seashells.
Enjoy them in soups and vegetable broths. Excellent served with creamy sauces made from tomatoes and pulses such as peas, beans or chickpeas.
