The term Maritati comes from the fact that maccheroncini, also called maccarruni or minchiarieddi, in the popular culture of Salento represent the symbol of male sexuality, while orecchiette is that of female sexuality.
The name Maritati, as married, and this format of pasta was the protagonist of the salentine wedding lunches of the past as a wish for a peaceful and fruitful marriage.
This pasta is perfect in combination with red meat sauces with the addition of pecorino or with a tomato and basil sauce, with flaky cacioricotta cheese. Recipes to be redone at home is that of maritati with broccoli cream, sausage and caciocavallo or with sautéed pancetta.
This pasta format goes well with the same fantastic combinations that are normally offered with orecchiette: from the classic broccoli and anchovy sauce to that with turnip greens, passing through vegan all'ortolana versions, colored with cabbage and borettane onions or sauces of perch and vegetables.
