Macaroni is a variety of moderately extended, dry pasta made with durum wheat. Macaroni noodles normally do not contain eggs, and are normally cut in short, hollow shapes; however, the term refers not to the shape of the pasta, but to the kind of dough from which the noodle is made. Although home machines exist that can make macaroni shapes, macaroni is usually made commercially by large-scale extrusion. The curved shape is caused by the different speeds on either side of the pasta tube as it comes out of the machine. The name derives from Italian "maccheroni", although today this name has fallen into disuse, in favor of more popular names "rigatoni" or "tortiglioni".
