An interesting fact about Calabrian and Sicilian maccheroncini. The two types of pasta are often confused, but there are some differences between them. Firstly, Sicilian maccheroncini are usually smaller and shorter than Calabrian maccheroncini. Also, Sicilians like to eat their maccheroncini with a meat sauce, while Calabrians traditionally prefer them with a tomato sauce.
