Mostacciolli, also spelled as mostacioli, is a type of Italian pasta, which is easily distinguished by its tube or cylindrical shape. Many easily get confused with the penne and mostaccioli varieties of pasta, however the main difference lies in that although mostaccioli is penne shaped, it is often smooth without any ridges. Mostaciolli is often medium sized with the ends cut on an angle. Used in a number of recipes, mainly Italian, mostaciolli enjoys the same favoritism as its many counterparts.
