The Paccheri of the Benedetto Cavalieri pasta factory have the shape of large macaroni. To make them, Benedetto Cavalieri uses only blends of the best durum wheat and bronze dies. These paccheri, like all the artisanal pasta of the famous Apulian pasta factory, are made with the method defined as "delicate", with prolonged kneading, slow kneading and finally drying at a low temperature.

Since its foundation, Benedetto Cavalieri has focused on innovation and quality, thus using the most modern machines for kneading, kneading, pressing and drawing. To avoid the drying of the pasta in the street, as it happened in those years, it introduces a modern system, called the "Cirillo Method", which consists in drying the pasta in dedicated rooms, equipped with a hot water radiator and a large fan , whose times were marked by the experience of the pasta maker.

Benedetto Cavalieri pasta is renowned throughout the world for the rigorous selection of Italian durum wheat that grows in soils especially suited to the hills of Puglia and Basilicata; the wheat is grown without the massive and usual use of chemical fertilizers that increase yields at the expense of quality. It is also known for its "delicate" processing method which guarantees the complete preservation of the precious nutritional values of good durum wheat.
