Ditali Rigati (ridged thimbles) are part of the very short, straight cut pasta family and originate from Campania.
The shape of this pasta is inspired by the sewing thimble, but is open at the top as well. The chunky shape and ridges of Ditali Rigati makes it very versatile for pasta dishes with tomato or in soups and vegetable broths.
Ditali Rigati are especially suited to preparing pasta dishes with a variety of sauces ranging from meat to fish and from vegetables to pulses. The secret of a perfect recipe is that the sauces have a sufficiently liquid consistency so they penetrate inside the pasta.
This pasta is also just as good for preparing broths and soups with vegetables or pulses.

Candele Spezzate (broken candles) are a delicious variety of Candele, originally from the south of Italy, and their name and shape are derived from the candles that were carried during religious processions.
This pasta is excellent 'au gratin' and perfect for capturing and soaking up all the sauce.
