An extruded hollow pasta made from semolina flour and water. Unlike other types of pasta, macaroni does not contain eggs as an ingredient. Although most shapes are tubes, there are different types such as shells, twists, and even ribbons. Common examples of macaroni include ziti, rigatoni, mostaccioli, and penne.
All of these types of macaroni are now widely available in whole wheat for a more nutritious pasta option.
