The eastern region of Abruzzo has a long history of making pasta. The most famous is the maccheroni alla chitarra. It’s made on a wooden frame much like a guitar, chitarra being the Italian word for the stringed instrument.
We’ve imported the Aldo Zilli Chitarra Pasta Cutter directly from Italy so you can create the real deal at home from fresh pasta dough. Perfect as a gift for adventurous cooks.
If you want to get even more authentic, serve with a sugo fino. The ragu-like sauce pairs perfectly with the long flat pasta.
