- HOMEMADE PASTA
Widely used in southern and central Italy, Rigatoni get their name from "rigare" which means to draw a line. The difference between Rigatoni and Penne is Rigatoni have square-cut ends and Penne have angle-cuts. Rigatoni work best with chunky sauces like pesto and meat sauces. The benefit of tube shaped pastas are their ability to catch the sauce on both the inside and outside surfaces.
