Central Market Spaghetti Alla Chitarra Pasta di Gragnano

Product Description

Pronounced: (spa‑geh‑ti ah‑la chi‑ta‑ra)

Meaning: It originates from the Abruzzo region of central Italy and is named after a guitar‑like loom with steel threads used to work its dough.

Unlike standard cylindrical shaped spaghetti, Spaghetti Alla Chitarra is a square shaped pasta. It is best suited for meat and fish sauces.

The best pasta in the world comes from Gragnano, a small village nestled in the hills of Campania near southern Italy's Amalfi Coast. So dedicated is the village to the artisanal creation of pasta that the width of the streets and the height of the buildings were designed so as to allow the breeze from the Mediterranean Sea to circulate better and facilitate the drying of the pasta. Pasta di Gragnano is made from durum wheat and semolina combined with fresh water from the Lattari Mountains. It is shaped by the artistry of Gragnano pasta-makers using bronze dies which make the surface of the pasta a rough texture, allowing it to better capture and hold sauces once cooked.
