Tube-shaped pasta made with 100% Amber Durum Wheat

Paccheri are named after the Neopolitan term for "slaps," either because of the slapping noise the pasta makes when stirred or chewed (or maybe because the noodles are so large that they practically slap you in the face while you eat!). This evocatively named pasta has equally colorful origins. It's said that paccheri was invented in the 1600s as a way to smuggle banned Italian garlic across the border into Prussia. The pasta tubes were the perfect size for concealing four or five cloves of garlic! Honor paccheri's past by serving the pasta with a garlicky meat sauce, or slap away with a simple sauce of cream and cheese.
