Lenta lavorazione or “slow working” is the not-so-secret secret behind the exceptional quality of Rummo’s Lenta Lavorazione pasta. Firm, resilient and al dente every time, Rummo’s consistent quality from one cut to the next makes it one of our favourite brands.
Chitarra (meaning guitar) was traditionally cut with a kitchen instrument made up of tightly pulled parallel wires, like guitar strings. Spaghetti alla Chitarra has a square cross section and rough, absorbent surface. When the square ridges become twisted they form lots of little ridges ideal for catching sauce.
