One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
Pasta in the shape of small tubes.
- ‘Jonathan Waxman is back, this time dishing up rustic Italian - bucatini, bacalao, a lemony roast chicken - at the casually hip West Village bistro Barbuto.’
- ‘Among high ceilings, a pine bar, and big glass doors left over from the site's beginnings as a gas station, Watershed's customers peruse 350 wine varieties and dig into entrées like bucatini with sausage and roasted peppers.’
- ‘My bucatini alla norma - pasta tubes in a rich tomato, olive oil, basil and aubergine sauce, with fresh ricotta and smoked ricotta cheese shavings - smelt so good our three-year-old ate half of it as well as her pizza.’
- ‘Also evoking the sensation of just-harvested ingredients is a coarse amatriciana of tomato, chili, and pecorino atop al dente bucatini.’
- ‘He anticipates making whole wheat bigoli, bucatini, maccheroncelli, and pici which, Gallante says somewhat sheepishly, ‘look like joints’, with their tapered ends and twisted appearance when cooked.’
- ‘She purées cavolo nero, a greenish-black kale, for a sauce that clings to gritty artisanal bucatini, and tops the dish with crunchy sautéed bread crumbs (a signature touch).’
- ‘We chose bucatini all'amatriciana, veal chop, and strawberry granita.’
- ‘Thick bucatini jeweled with bacon, Pecorino cheese, tomato, and peppercorns is even stronger and more gratifying.’
- ‘And the briny piquancy of the broths that hold together his risotto with razor clams or bucatini with lobster make the addition of seafood to both dishes almost unnecessary.’
- ‘A starter of bucatini (a slightly hollow spaghetti) with squid was altogether more peasanty.’
- ‘Cook the bucatini for nine minutes, or according to the instructions on the packet.’
- ‘Nothing makes a better spaghetti carbonara; nothing else is acceptable in bucatini Amatriciana or bucatini alla Gricia.’
