Spaghetti Chitarra from Afeltra are made with 100% Italian durum wheat semolina that is mixed with water from Gragnano. Afeltra uses only traditional bronze extruding machines which give the artisanal pasta a rough and porous texture that will absorb the pasta sauce much better when preparing your dish. Afeltra pasta is 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! The name Spaghetti Chitarra comes from the Italian for the chords of a guitar – as opposed to regular spaghetti, this shape has a square-cut and is slightly wider. Enjoy it with shellfish ragù, or tomato sauce and ricotta.

Afeltra was founded in 1848 and is located in the heart of Gragnano. The best durum wheat semolina is delivered to the company and then carefully selected to make sure they have the characteristics of excellence required. The dough is mixed slowly in a vacuum using the purest water from the Lattari Mountains of Gragnano. The pasta is made with an exclusive bronze die extrusion process, and the drying lasts from 24 to 52 hours, depending on the shape, with temperatures that never exceed 118°F.
