Some people claim that Pipe can be traced back to Roman cooking while others maintain that this type of pasta originated more generically from the central-southern part of Italy.
Pipe Lisce are a delicious variation of the Lumaca (snail) shape pasta which, thanks to the double-ended opening and the distinctive ridges, are perfect for mixing up with less dense, more liquid sauces to soak up all the condiment.
Lumache Rigate (grooved snails) are especially good with ragù sauces made from pork or beef, sausages or mushrooms. This pasta is also perfect for summer dishes with light sauces made from fresh tomatoes and mozzarella, or oven-baked dishes.

Spaghettoni Quadrati, a bigger, chunkier variation of the classic Maccheroni alla Chitarra, are especially good with dishes that have a strong, marked taste or for recipes that have to be tossed in the frying pan.
This pasta is ideal for traditional recipes such as "carbonara", "amatriciana" and "alla gricia".
