Italian Bucatini Pasta

1.1 pounds - Naples, Italy 

Italian bucatini pasta is thicker than spaghetti and the center of each long strand is hollow - think of a drinking straw. Sapori di Napoli bucatini is thicker than the average store-bought version, and superior ingredients and traditional production methods give it exceptional flavor and texture. The drinking-straw shape of bucatini pasta allows sauces not just to coat it, but to get all the way inside the tubes, too . . . the better to maximize the melding of pasta and sauce! 

Serving Suggestions

Bucatini pasta is a staple of Campania, where it is traditionally served with puttanesca sauce; in Lazio, it's served all'amatriciana, with olive oil, chopped tomato, Pecorino, pancetta and a little crushed red pepper.

About the Producer: Sapori di Napoli

In Italy's Campania region, pasta is considered art, ritual, culture, and history - especially in Naples and the towns and villages that surround it. The craftsmen at the Pastificio Artigianale Romita - located in the village of Borgo Reale di S. Leucio about 15 miles due north of Naples - produce their pasta Sapori di Napoli with the love and devotion of connoisseurs.

The skill and experience of the Master Pasta Makers are paramount; they employ traditional production methods now abandoned by industrial pasta makers. Starting with just the purest water and semolina from hand-selected durum wheat - whose low ash and high gluten content create superior texture and flavor - they work the dough by hand before extruding it through bronze dies in the traditional manner. The pasta is then dried slowly under controlled low-temperature conditions from 24 to 92 hours depending on the shape. This slow drying leads to uniform absorption of water during cooking and a perfect "al dente" on your plate.

Great Pasta
I bought this pasta for my first recipe using Bucatini pasta. What a wonderful pasta, it cooked up perfectly and the texture really held the sauce well. Loved it.
