Bucatini (pasta rods) are long strands of pasta with a round pierced section and a typical Neapolitan speciality. Bucatini are used for the famous Bucatini all'Amatriciana, a bacon tomato sauce. It is also a rather versatile shape, suitable for butter, meats, cheese and egg based sauces.
De Cecco was founded in 1886 by the De Cecco brothers in the Abruzzo region of Italy. They pioneered a low temperature drying method for pasta which increased the consistency and quality of dry pasta, and are now one of Italy's most popular pasta brands.
