Perfect Paccheri / Paccheri Perfetti
This unique, tube-shaped pasta has room inside for all kinds of secret things. Mary Ann recounts how Italians used to smuggle cloves of garlic across the Austrian border inside these little beauties. But today she makes even better use of them by creating Paccheri with Shrimp, Paccheri with Mushroom Sauce, and Paccheri with Sun-Dried Tomatoes. Smuggle in your appetite.
