What's Spaghettoni? If it sounds like a mash-up of spaghetti and rigatoni, that's not far off - think of it as a slightly beefier version of spaghetti. A wider diameter, a little more chew, but the same friendly noodle we know and love. All products in Granoro's Dedicato line of pastas are Bronze Cut, as opposed to the teflon die cut more commonly used for dried pasta.
What's the benefit of a bronze die? Primarily, this produces a roughly exterior for the pasta (if you go to the supermarket and look at the cheapest bag of pasta, the exterior will look extremely smooth - this is teflon die cut). Rougher surface means more sauce, more sauce means more flavor, more flavor hopefully means we'll see you here again stocking up on more pasta.

Cooked this with some of the calabrian chilies, it was awesome. Thanks!
