Bucatini from Afeltra are made with 100% Italian Durum Wheat Semolina mixed with water from Gragnano. Afeltra only uses traditional bronze extruding machines, giving the artisanal pasta a rough texture with many pores which help to better absorb the pasta sauce when finishing the dish. Afeltra Bucatini are also slowly dried at a low temperature for up to 48 hours which helps the protein structure in the pasta stay strong allowing for a better al dente texture!
Bucatini, from the word bucato meaning pierced in Italian, is a long Spaghetti with a hole in the middle. It is a very famous shape from Rome to Sicily.
Enjoy it with Amatriciana Tomato Sauce as the Romans do!
