maccarruna di zitu

/mahk-kahr-ROO-nah dee TSEE-too/

A pasta shaped like a wide bucatini, made with special straws called busi. A small piece of dough is placed on the straw and then rolled on the table under the palms of both hand, the dough wrapping itself around the straw. The straw is then drawn out leaving a vaguely tubular piece of pasta. Rather labour-intensive.
