Among the countless versions of maccherone, apparently Sedani were first created in Naples with a smooth shape and the name "denti di elefante" (elephant's tooth), and later acquired the grooved pattern like the ridges on celery, according to some from Tuscany, and the change in the original name.
Sedani Rigati (ridged version) go very well with elaborate condiments such as ragùs made from meat and mushrooms or sausage, but they are equally as good for preparing oven-baked dishes or simply with tomato and basil.
Available in 500g or 3 Kg packs.
Racchette (rackets) are an original and exclusive shape from the De Cecco range of pasta. They belong to the short, whimsical pasta family.
Racchette excellent just with tomato sauce, but are particularly good in recipes with ragùs made from meat, mushrooms, or with condiments made with vegetables.
