I really enjoy this type of spaghetti. Compares favorably to bucatini in thickness,
it's just not hollow..
The Rustichella D'Abbruzzo pastas - and the Chitarra in particular - are, hands down, the best pastas I have had outside of Italy. They have every quality one hopes for in a mouthful of pasta - just chewy enough(but never doughy), perfect carriers for sauce, and with that satisfying taste of wheat underneath the sauce. Bravo, Market Hall!
We are big fans of this brand of pasta, especiallyt he Chitarra. I tried this "primo grano" version, a bit skeptical that we would notice a difference. We could. It has a bit more flavor and texture than the regular. We'll probably stick with the regular most of the time (for price), but this is a nice treat for something different.
