Once difficult to find outside of the Abruzzo region of Italy, Spaghette alla chitarra has come to be a popular member of the Italian long-noodle family. Square rather than round or flat, their shape makes them an ideal pasta partner for anything from sturdy meat sauces to thick and luxurious cream-based ones. Now, easier than ever to enjoy, try our delightful fresh-frozen Spaghette alla chitarra today!
This classic Italian noodle gets its signature shape from the tool it’s made from. The “chitarra,” or guitar, is a pasta cutting tool with a wooden frame strung with metal wires that quickly cuts sheets of pasta into identical strips with uniquely squared ends. While typically served with an Abruzzo style ragu, these delightful noodles are wonderful served with any type of sauce, from meat to cream.
Carefully crafted from only the finest ingredients, our pasta chitarra, is made from fresh eggs and Tippo 00 Durum wheat flour. Once rolled, cut, and portioned, our pasta fresca are lightly coated in oil to prevent any sticking or clumping before they are flash-frozen. Each nest of delicious Spaghette is conveniently pre-portioned, so you can easily grab as many as you need. Quick to cook, they’re ready to serve in under a minute and yield positively scrumptious results!
