Schiaffone is a traditional type of Neapolitan dry pasta, a sort of large, smooth maccheroni (macaroni) made of hard grains and generally bronze colored. The name Schiaffoni comes from Greek, from the first founders of the Parthenon and it means "slap." It is still used in dialect today, it stands to mean a strong open-handed slap. From here the name, slightly ironic, of the type of pasta, of the bountiful cut, very superior to the norm and in general accompanied by succulent, juicy sauces.
