Spaghettoni, a bigger, chunkier variation of the classic Spaghetti, are especially good with dishes that have a strong, marked taste or for recipes that have to be tossed in the frying pan. This pasta is excellent with courgette flowers, lamb sauce, chicken livers or shellfish.

Bucatini (also called Perciatelli) are originally from Naples and have an elongated shape with a round cross section and are hollow inside.
Bucatini all'Amatriciana are famous with tomato sauce, pork cheek and a sprinkling of pecorino romano (sheep's cheese).
This type of pasta is quite versatile and also excellent with sauces made with butter, meat or fish.
Bucatini are perfect with vegetable sauces too that are prepared with a tomato sauce with peppers, aubergines, courgettes, olives and capers.
