Bucatini is a thick spaghetti-like pasta with a hole running through the center. The name comes from the Italian buco, meaning "hole", while bucato means "pierced". Bucatini is common throughout Lazio, particularly Rome. It is a tubed pasta made of hard durum wheat flour and water. Its length is about 10" with a 1/8" diameter. In Italian cuisine, it is served with buttery sauces, pancetta or guanciale, vegetables, cheese, eggs, and anchovies or sardines. This bucatini is made by Rustichella d'Abruzzo and comes in a 250g package.
