Paccheri is a type of large, tube-shaped pasta originating from the Campania region of southern Italy, particularly the area around Naples. Its name is derived from the Italian word "pacca," meaning "slap" or "pat," which may refer to the sound the pasta makes when it's slapped against a hard surface or to its broad, flat shape.

With its large diameter and sturdy, ridged texture, paccheri pasta is ideal for holding thick, hearty sauces. The tubes are typically cut into short lengths, creating hollow cylinders that resemble oversized rigatoni. This generous size and robust structure make paccheri a favorite choice for dishes that feature rich and flavourful sauces, as the pasta's ample surface area allows it to capture and hold onto sauce, ensuring each bite is bursting with deliciousness.

Paccheri pairs exceptionally well with a wide variety of sauces, from creamy cheeses and seafood to meat-based ragùs and tomato-based sauces. It is often featured in traditional Neapolitan dishes such as "pasta alla Genovese," a rich beef and onion ragù, or "pasta con le sarde," a pasta dish with sardines, wild fennel, raisins, and pine nuts.

Beyond its culinary versatility, paccheri's substantial size and satisfying chewiness make it a standout ingredient in both classic Italian recipes and innovative modern dishes. Whether served as a comforting bowl of pasta al forno (baked pasta) or tossed with fresh seafood and herbs for a vibrant summer meal, paccheri pasta brings a taste of southern Italy to every forkful
