Croxetti originated in the Middle Ages, when cooks of noble Ligurian families would press a thin sheet of pasta between two wooden molds engraved with the family's coat of arms on one side and symbols on the other.
Quite often the symbol stamped on the second side was the Christian cross, thereby giving the pasta its name.
