Pipe Rigate are a delicious variation of the Lumaca (snail) shape pasta which, thanks to the double-ended opening and the distinctive ridges, are perfect for mixing up with and capturing less dense, more liquid sauces.
Pipe Rigate are especially good with ragù sauces made from pork or beef, sausages or mushrooms. This pasta is also perfect for summer dishes with light sauces made from fresh tomatoes and mozzarella, or oven-baked dishes.
