In Lazio, the name Tonnarelli is used for the local version of Maccheroni alla Chitarra from the Abruzzo region.
Traditionally, this pasta was made using a "guitar": a tool made from strings stretched across a frame used to cut the sheet of pasta into different lengths of spaghetti with a square cross section.
The most popular recipe for this type of pasta is cacio cheese and pepper or "la gricia" which are classic dishes from the area around Rome.
