Where To Buy Bucatini Pasta

Currently, our Italian Supermarket carries just one variant of this spaghetti-look-alike pasta: Bucatini Pasta di Gragnano by Pastificio Gentile.

What is Bucatini?

It's a type of pasta. These long narrow tubes of pasta are not only popular in Italy; particularly they have a large fan base in Rome. This dry pasta is a favorite pasta, not only for adults but especially for kids because of their fun shape! Don't let it fool you, for although it looks like spaghetti, this long pasta is much more thicker and sports a hollow center - making it tubular in shape. Hence the word - buco, meaning hole.

Best enjoyed al dente, these pasta noodles are delicious when prepared as bucatini all'amatriciana; a traditional pasta recipe. When cooked in a large pot, the cooking time for this noodle is short (eight to ten minutes). If you are buying fresh bucatini pasta, it is important to check the brand name in priority. The fresh kind boils for three to five minutes. Be sure to use the pasta water after the pasta cooks, for any sauces of your planned pasta dish.
