Cannaroni, from the family of short, straight cut, ridged pasta, do not have a specific place of origin, although it is presumed that this pasta originated in Campania.
The name Cannaroni refers to the specific shape which is similar to a large barrel or the throat, called "cannarone" in Neapolitan dialect.
Cannaroni are often used for oven-baked dishes and are very good with meat based ragù or tomato sauces.

Among the countless versions of maccherone, apparently Sedani were first created in Naples with a smooth shape and the name "denti di elefante" (elephant's tooth), and later acquired the grooved pattern like the ridges on celery, according to some from Tuscany, and the change in the original name.
Sedani Rigati (ridged version) go very well with elaborate condiments such as ragùs made from meat and mushrooms or sausage, but they are equally as good for preparing oven-baked dishes or simply with tomato and basil.
