Gramigna, which originated in Emilia Romagna, is a type of pasta similar to a short bucatino which has been slightly twisted. Its shape resembles the tiny seed of one of the most common grasses.
Gramigna is traditionally accompanied by sausage based sauces or Bolognese ragù. In general, all meat and tomato based sauces go well with this type of pasta.

Tortiglioni are one of many varieties of maccherone, one of the oldest types of pasta originating from Naples.
The name in Italian refers to the shape and comes from the Vulgar Latin tortillare which literally means to wrap in a spiral with a characteristic pattern from the lathe used in pasta production.
The shape is particularly versatile, but also very original, and best suited to full-bodied sauces.
Tortiglioni are excellent served with succulent, meat-based sauces. They are also very good served with tomato sauce or vegetable and tomato sauces. It is a particularly suitable type of pasta for oven-baked dishes.
