do Neapolitan people eat ?
In the XV
period a small object similar to a stamp machine was invented to make
pasta shapes . This object was called a trafila or ngegno . It produced
all types of pasta shapes and big pieces of squashed pasta . This was
originally Neapolitan and for some
time was only produced in Naples in the small villages in Gragnano on
the Amalfi coast . The name Maccaronaro was given to the factories and
the sellers of the
maccheroni , pasta tubes already cooked . Along the streets there were
ovens lit by dimmed lamps and covered by
large tents next to boilers where hot pasta tubes covered with
cheese were cooked .
