maccheronia al pettine

/mahk-kehr-ROH-nyah ahl peht-TEE-neh/

A type of pasta found in Modena, what is called garganelli elsewhere in Emilia-Romagna. It is like ridged penne, rolled and quill-shaped. Unlike many such pastas it is not made in long tubes which are then cut, but from small squares of pasta rolled on the diagonal. They are generally served with meat rag├╣ or a cream sauce of some kind.
