Chitarrone is a type of long pasta, the same width as linguine but thicker. It is like “square spaghetti”, but more substantial than the usual “spaghetti alla chitarra”. La Dispensa di Amerigo Pasta is made in Emilia-Romagna, a locally-sourced product which boasts full control over the entire production cycle, from growing the grain to the shipment of the final product, using the most modern technologies throughout. Our quality-control system ensures strict respect of the procedures necessary to maintain the highest quality standards. The semi-wholemeal production process does not stress the grain by removing all the fibre, but instead leaves one more layer than the traditional semolina; this enhances the quality and digestibility. The bronze die gives our pasta an unmistakable colour and full body with slightly rough texture, ideal to hold the sauce. Set out on frames, the pasta dries slowly for 14 hours, for short pasta, and for 20 hours for long pasta.
