Rotelle are a type of pasta resembling wheels with spokes. It is similar to Fiori.
The name derives from the Italian word for little wheels. They are also known as wagon wheels.
Rotelle 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.
