'drawn-out' pasta

A home-made pasta similar to orecchiette, only larger, sometimes rolled up; they usually go with meat sauces or greens (cima di rape), or even sardines and pinenuts. Strascinati con l'intoppo from the Basilicata has a sauce with three different kinds of meat and pecorino. Also spelled strascenate.
