Paccheri is a short ribbed stright cut pasta, originated from Southern regions. The name comes from paccare, which means slap, probably because of its thick and heavy consistency.
De Cecco Paccheri is recommended for making dried pasta dishes with thick chunky meat ragus, such as ragu, which can easily penetrate and cling into the pasta making it even more dainty. Alternatively it is also excellent in casseroles baked with cheeses and tomato sauce.
Excellent with fish sauce!
