Rustichella d'Abruzzo Bucatini
Otherwise known as "hollow spaghetti". Deriving from the Italian word bucato, meaning "pierced," bucatini are long, thick spaghetti with a hole through the center. A common pasta shape in the area around Rome, bucatini is traditionally served all'Amatriciana, with a spicy sauce of tomatoes, dried chile and guanciale (salt-cured pork). In Sicily, they use these hollow noodles for pasta con le sarde (with sardines and wild fennel). Enjoy with any tomato-based sauce and slurp loudly, as the Romans do.
