Gnocchi Piccoli are a fun variation of the classic Gnocchi.
Gnocchi are originally from Campania and were created from the imagination of the pasta-makers who, while remaining true to the tradition of semolina pasta, took their inspiration from the classic potato gnocchi.
Gnocchi have a distinctive concave, ribbed shape and are excellent for capturing and bringing out the best in denser sauces, such as Bolognese sauce.
The most popular condiment for Gnocchi is tomato: from a simple tomato and basil sauce to the heartiest meat sauces, but they are also very good served with pesto.

Paccheri are a typical pasta from the Campania region. The name comes from "paccarià" which in Neapolitan dialect means "slap". Probably in popular tradition it was a reference to the large, heavy consistency. This pasta is popular in other regions as well, albeit with different names.
It is recommended for preparing pasta dishes served with dense, hearty meat ragùs such as Neapolitan ragù which works its way inside the pasta and fills it with flavour.
Alternatively, it can be enjoyed in oven-baked dishes with cheese and tomato sauce or rich fish sauces.
