The name derives from the Italian word for little wheels. They are also known as wagon wheels.
Rotelle, which is commonly known as "wagon wheel" pasta, was once a popular product sold in Ohio supermarkets by the former Ippolito's Ideal Macaroni Company of Cleveland, Ohio, under the name "Choo Choo Wheels". The Ideal Choo Choo Wheels packages once had a picture of a train, and was marketed to children. On the back of the packages was a cut out of a train, which children would use Choo Choo Wheels for the train's wheels. Choo Choo Wheels are currently manufactured by San Giorgio Pasta, which is a division of Hershey Foods. The product is still sold under the "Choo Choo Wheels" name in Ohio.[original research?]
Rotelle should not be confused with rotini (corkscrew-shaped pasta).
