                                                                 Authentic Amazing Italian Rolled Eggplant

Made with hand-squeezed tomatoes, linguine, garlic, and Parmigiano Reggiano – delicious!




Bucatini is a fabulous pasta.  The noodles fill with sauce because there is a hole in the middle of the noodle. To the untrained eye, it might get mistaken for spaghetti, but upon

further inspection, you will notice it’s a bit thicker.  And there’s a little baby hole that runs all the way through the noodle. Wow!  That hollow center is what make bucatini so fantastic.  Where spaghetti or linguine get coated with sauce, bucatini gets coated and filled with sauce.  It’s the ultimate delivery vehicle for velvety pasta sauce like carbonara.  The hollow center gives you more sauce with each bite, and around here, I believe more sauce is always better. Frankly, carbonara was just made for bucatini.



This is bucatini all’ amatriciana with Carolina shrimp, guanciale, hand-squeezed tomatoes, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Now you should start to be getting very hungry!
