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.

Sedanini are a smaller variation of the classic Sedani Rigati and are excellent for preparing vegetable soups and broths, but they can also be enjoyed with light tomato based sauces. Vegetable sauces made from tomatoes and pulses are also recommended.
