Fusilli Corti Bucati, originally from the Campania region, owe their distinctive spiral shape to the ancient tradition of rapidly twisting a strand of spaghetti around a knitting needle with a skilled hand.
This pasta is excellent served with hearty meat or vegetable ragùs.

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.
