alla chitarra

/(ahl-lah) kee-TAHR-rah/

"In the style of guitar." This refers to egg pasta in Abruzzo and Marche cut on a special instrument called a chitarra which shapes into long, rectangular, square-sided, strands. A sheet of pasta is laid across lines of stretched wire, rather like an egg slicer. A rolling pin is then passed over the pasta and the wires achieve the cut.
