This is one of our faves!
When it comes to pasta most people are either short cut or long cut people. But there are a few lesser known pastas that bridge that divide and Bucatini is one of them. A.K.A. Perciatelli, Bucatini is not just a long pasta, it is a long pasta with a whole down the centre! Not only will Bucatini gather sauce in its tangled nest, it also allows sauce to sneak inside its hollow centre. When the purpose of pasta shapes is to act as a vehicle for sauce delivery, this duality makes Bucatini a pasta star!
Traditionally served with Amatriciana sauce, Bucatini is also perfect for velvety pasta sauces like Carbonara or Caico e Pepe. Not only do we love it for its sauce gathering abilities, Bucatini also has a terrifically bouncy mouth feel and is a whole lot of fun to slurp!
SAUCE SUGGESTION: If you’re not up for making you own sauce, try it with one of ours. We’d recommend either Zara’s Putanesca or Spicy Sausage sauce.
SERVING SIZE: We recommend 200g per person for a main course (as pictured).
