Pipe rigate (grooved pipes) come the campania area and belong to the whimsical shaped dried pasta families. They have a grooved snail shell shape they are about 25 mm long and their thickness varies between 1,22 and 1,37 mm.
Pipe rigate are excellent with hearty meat sauces, such as in pork or veal ragùs, with chunky sausage, meat or mushroom sauces; perfect also in summery dishes, light sauces with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and a touch of basil.
This variation is perfect for a small snack in between meals. The piece of lean bacon (mountain ham) can be cut in half again, as with the traditional Speckbrettl, and cut into bite-sized pieces with a knife. This piece of lean bacon also fits very practically on any slicing machine; only the rind needs to be removed.

During the hot season, which did not allow for air curing, in earlier times people began to cook the meat first and then lightly smoke it. This resulted in a good shelf life and a food product with an extraordinary taste and aroma.
It is produced using white grape Must, acetified and aged in oak barrels to get its typical amber colour. Its most striking feature is that it does not alter the colour of dishes but it adds a fruity and mildly acid aroma and flavour (excellent to replace wine vinegar).
