We return to Abruzzo for another round of spaghetti all chitarra. is a variety of egg pasta typical of the Abruzzo region in Italy, the name of this spaghetti comes from the tool (the so-called chitarra, literally "guitar") this pasta is produced with. This tool gives the spaghetti its name, shape, and a porous texture that allows pasta sauce to adhere well to the pasta itself. The chitarra is a frame with a series of parallel wires crossing it. You will make this spaghetti on a chitarra that I brought back from Abruzzo.


After making the dough, it is placed on the chitarra and pushed through with the rolling pin, so that the strings of the "guitar" cut it into strips.


We will pair it with seasonal eggplant in one of Sicily's most epic pasta dishes, pasta alla Norma, named after Norma, Catania native Vincenzo Bellini's opera.


Once you've finished your masterpiece, you'll sit down to a delicious meal made by YOU with a lovely glass of wine.
