Gentile Bucatini (Organic) - 17.6oz

$8.95
Pastificio Gentile (est. 1876) is one of the historic, artisanal pasta factories that secured the city of Gragnano’s superior pasta reputation. Gentile only uses 100% Italian wheat varietals, which have a higher protein-density, excellent for cooking the perfect al dente pasta. The wheat is milled into semolina flour at one of Italy’s oldest running mills. The pasta is formed with bronze cut molds that impart a rough and porous texture much like homemade pasta. The pasta is slow-dried in the cirillo method to preserve texture & aroma.

ORIGIN: GRAGNANO, ITALY

 

Bucatini is aptly named after the Italian word Buco, meaning “hole.” It is a thick spaghetti-like pasta with a hole running through the center. Bucatini is popular throughout Lazio, particularly Rome.

The selected semolina wheat used in this pasta is strictly of Italian origin and of the best quality, including the Senatore Capelli variety which is renowned for cooking to al-dente. It also gives the pasta a golden color. Bronze cut pasta molds create a rough and porous texture much like homemade pasta. The low temperature drying method known as cirillo preserves the distinct texture and aroma.

 

Cooking Time: 15 min

 

How to Prepare: Bucatini is traditionally served with all’amatriciana (a sauce of cured pork cheek, pecorino and tomato), cacio e pepe (pecorino romano cheese and pepper), buttery sauces,  eggs, and anchovies or sardines.
