spaghetti alla chitarra

the name chitarra is the Italian translation  of the English name guitar. So spaghetti alla chitarra meaning is: spaghetti made with the guitar cooking tool. This name is because of the melody made by stretching the metallic wires of this tool, similar to the guitar sound. Should you not have it you can cut the dough with a knife, as for the umbrichelli. It will take only more time. The result are great squared spaghetti, which take the sauces very well and also very tasty.
