What is the origin of rigatoni pasta?

History and origin of pasta

Pasta is a food made from a kneaded mixture of flour, semolina, durum wheat, spelled, rice or other types of grain, water, and sometimes egg and salt. "Pasta" can also refer to dishes in which pasta is the main ingredient, served with sauce or seasonings. They have several varieties, depending on the diversity of forms such as noodles, spaghetti, coquillettes, or macaroni.

In Asia, pasta is also made with soft wheat flour, rice flour, soy flour, mung bean, etc.

The name egg pasta can only be used for pasta containing at least 140 g of whole eggs or egg yolks per kilogram of semolina.

There is also whole wheat pasta.

Dry pasta has many advantages: it is economical, easy to store thanks to dehydration, energetic, and easy to cook since all you need is a pot of water.

However, fresh pasta has a more pronounced taste. The French, Chinese, and Italians, in particular, continue to produce fresh pasta by hand, which has a different taste than dehydrated and packaged pasta, but its nutritional value is not significantly different.

Commercially available dry pasta is usually made of water and durum wheat semolina, with a moisture content of less than 12%; some contain eggs. The diversity of shapes of dry pasta comes from the fact that it is extruded: the mixture of water and semolina is pressed into a pasty state through a shaping machine. The different shapes are obtained from particular nozzles.

The composition of fresh pasta is regulated in France. The name "fresh egg pasta" requires three conditions to be met: a moisture content higher than 12%, a durum wheat semolina of superior quality, and a minimum of 140 grams of eggs per kilogram of semolina.

The process of making fresh pasta is called "rolling". The dough mixture is flattened to a thin sheet of about one millimeter thick. For example, double rolling is often used for "four corners" ravioli, where two sheets of pasta are placed on top of each other and then sealed after the filling is injected. Conversely, ravioli made from a single sheet of dough is referred to as "pillow" ravioli. The sheet of dough can also be passed through a ribbon-cutting machine (fettuccini).

The term pasta comes from the Bas-Latin pasta, which has the same meaning. The best-reputed pasta comes from Italy, although Japanese Rāmen or Chinese pasta is also very famous.
