A long, boat shaped pasta that is oval shaped with ragged or scalloped edges. Similar to cavatelli pasta, cicatelli is longer in length with a more twisted shape. It is a good pasta to serve when thick, chunky sauces, meat sauces or thick salad dressings are added and in need of a pasta to hold the sauces or dressings well. If it is unavailable, cavetelli, casarecci, gnocchetti, or rotini may be substituted.
