Pasta shapes that resemble small animals found in the garden or in fields are not uncommon.
The origins of Galletti (cockerels) are uncertain, but may well come from the Liguria region.
The shape is the same as Chifferi Rigati with the addition of a crimped line along the top edge that resembles a cockerel's crest.
The double-ended opening and the distinctive ridges mean that this pasta is perfect with less dense, more liquid sauces, all of which are captured inside it.
Galletti are excellent just with a simple tomato sauce, but are also delicious with sauces made from beef or pork or vegetables.

Spaghetti Tagliati (cut spaghetti) originate from the custom of breaking up long pasta when preparing recipes in broth or bean soups.
This pasta is great for all the family; for children who love eating it in broth flavoured with soft cheese and for adults who can enjoy it as a light and tasty dish.
Spaghetti Tagliati are mainly enjoyed in soups, with light, tasty broths enhanced with croutons or vegetables cut into julienne strips.
This pasta can be used in thick creamy or velvety soups.
