De Cecco Bucatini, 16-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 5)
De Cecco, the Italian Tradition of High Quality Pasta since 1886. Guaranteed! Ordinary dry pasta tends to be mushy, bland in taste and break apart, even if cooked carefully. De Cecco pasta easily cooks to perfection, has a great firm texture and a delicious “fresh” pasta taste. It has also a rougher surface, which helps the sauce stick to it. De Cecco pasta is the secret ingredient for your most amazing dishes! WHAT MAKES DE CECCO PASTA EXTRAORDINARY? Since 1886, De Cecco pasta has won worldwide recognition for its taste, firm texture, and cooking consistency. De Cecco pasta has become synonymous for superior quality and Italian authentic taste around the world. De Cecco grinds the premium-quality wheat in its own mill in Fara San Martino. De Cecco grinds it gently, to avoid damaging the vital gluten. A strict daily selection ensures that only the heart of each grain of wheat is chosen. The rest of the wheat is discarded. The dough is mixed only with cold spring water (59°F from the nearby mountains of Abruzzo National Park) and it's kneaded slowly, to assure optimal development of the gluten. This step also ensures that the resulting pasta has the exceptional De Cecco aroma, flavor and consistency. De Cecco forms the different shapes of pasta using only bronze dies, which produces a slightly rough surface that sauce clings to. Buon Appetito!

Pasta Heaven!Jan 18, 2011
Oh pasta, how I love thee in all your wonderful forms! But the toothy wonderful texture of bucatini and perciatelli is the most sublime of them all! This pasta is the opposite of Angel Hair pasta - it's a chewier, thicker version of Spaghetti and is wonderful with all kinds of strong sauces. We love Perciatelli with a garlic, chili, olive oil sauce with spicy Italian sausage or even sauteed boconcini. De Cecco brand pasta is wonderful quality too and very reasonably priced.

A Big Hit at Our House!Dec 07, 2013
By Kim Ikovic
We have been buying this for years but, we know it as perciatelli. One of the most important attributes of this pasta is the texture, it is not glass smooth like most American made pastas, but has a slightly rough texture which helps the sauce to coat each strand. Before we were married my husband had never eaten bucatini, but now it is the only pasta that he wants.

Not for everyoneOct 24, 2012
If you know what bucatini is, then this is good bucatini pasta.
If you are unfamiliar with bucatini, this is FAT spaghetti with a really thin needle sized hole through the strand of "spaghetti". This isn't a good replacement for folks who just want to chow down on spaghetti. It can't be twirled with a fork. It must be cut first -- you need some manners -- before it gets on the fork. The pasta is just too sturdy and thick to "swirl".
However, your diners will like this BETTER than spaghetti if they have the patience to cut the past before putting it on the fork. It holds sauce well, feels substantial, and is just plain more interesting than spaghetti.
I recommend for a change of pace from regular ol' spaghetti, but know your diners -- they might be confused that it can't be twirled(!

Cooks up great in 10 minutes and worked great in several recipes I tried that include this type of pasta.
