Pettole Abruzzesi are a typical pasta shape from the rural culinary tradition of the Abruzzo region, also known as "the meal of desire". The pasta is a variety of "sagne" cut into diamond shapes and widely used in the mountain districts. De Cecco recommends trying it with bean soups, with chickpeas and black truffle, or with fresh anchovies and green beans.

Casareccia is originally from Sicily, but is also characteristic of other southern Italian regions.
This pasta is shaped like a small, smooth piece of parchment, rolled up and folded in at the top. The name conjures up its bygone home-made origins, an interpretation of the Arab-style "pasta busiata" obtained with the thin stem of a plant around which pieces of dough were at one time wrapped.
Casareccia is very good with classic ragù, although the smooth, slightly porous surface is also ideal for capturing all types of sauces, from traditional ones to even the simplest of sauces.
