Conchiglioni Rigati (large grooved shells), which originate from the Campania region, are now very popular all over Italy.
The unusual size and shell shape makes this pasta ideal for capturing sauces and so, is an unbeatable shape for preparing oven-baked, filled pasta dishes, with fish or meat sauces.
In addition to being baked in the oven and filled, this pasta can also be enjoyed with fresh condiments such as light, springtime sauces with mozzarella, tomato and fresh basil.

Rigatoni, which is a typical type of traditional pasta from Rome, have the characteristic ridged external surface and a large diameter and thickness.
The shape is particularly versatile and is perfect with a variety of tomato or vegetable sauces, but the best condiments are sauces made from meat: slow-cooked sauces with meat and mushrooms, made from beef and pork, sausage or giblets. The recipe with pajata (calf intestines) is a classic dish.
Any type of sauce that is sufficiently liquid to get inside the pasta and be trapped by the ridges is recommended.
