Buccatini is a very similar pasta to spaghetti, however, unlike spaghetti, buccatini is thicker and also has a hole running throughout its centre. Whereas long pasta shapes get coated in sauce, buccatini gets both coated and filled with sauce so the flavour of your sauce has a chance to fully soak into each strand. Taking only 5-8 minutes to cook, this range of pasta is a great option for pasta and dried sauce concepts, or to simply reduce the cook time within your process.
It is beloved for its hollow strands, which resemble spaghetti but with a hole running through the centre.
Texture & Cooking
The hollow centre of buccatini gives it a unique texture, and it cooks to a firm and chewy consistency. The hole also allows the pasta to absorb and hold onto sauces and flavours effectively.
Buccatini is a versatile pasta shape and can be used in a variety of dishes. Its hollow centre makes it perfect for holding thick and hearty sauces.
