Rotelle are a type of pasta resembling wheels with spokes. They are similar to fiori.

The name derives from the Italian word for little wheels.

Rotelle should not be confused with rotini (corkscrew-shaped pasta). Nonetheless, some manufacturers, such as Ronzoni, produce a twisted pasta with that name.[1]
