The term “maccheroni” usually means,especially abroad, a generic type of short, tube-shaped pasta of varying size. It is hollow inside because it absorbs the sauces that accompany it better.
De Cecco Maccheroni are ideal for preparing dishes with or without tomato sauce, with vegetables and served in broth.

It is a shorter version of the classic Rigatoni, which is a typical type of traditional pasta from Rome, that has the characteristic ridged external surface and a large diameter and thickness.
The best condiments for Mezzi Rigatoni are meat or vegetable sauces provided that they are dense enough to work their way inside and be trapped by the ridges. Amazing with fish based recipes.
