Spaghetti all chitarra, is a flat sided spaghetti style pasta popular in the Abruzzo region of Italy. Translated chitarra means guitar, referencing the multi stringed machine that the pasta is made with. Flat sheets of pasta are placed overtop and pushed through a series of closely strung steel wires creating flat sided spaghetti that has a square profile. When twisted around your fork, the additional ridges created by the square sides capture sauce beautifully.
The next best thing to fresh pasta, Rustichella pasta is in a category all its own. Using the highest quality durum wheat semolina and bronze extrusion, Rustichella dries their pasta for 40-60 hours at low temperatures. Allowing the pasta to slow dry preserves the natural essence and texture of the pasta.
SUGGESTED USE: Traditionally served with meat sauces made with beef, pork or lamb.
