La Pasta di Aldo Chitarrine

Exemplary egg pasta.

Luigi Donnari’s egg pastas are some of the best I’ve ever had. He’s renowned for being sort of a stickler for all parts of the process.

  • He chooses only organic Senatore Cappeli wheat and blends it with other varieties to get the right texture.
  • He stone grinds the grain, instead of milling with steel, to get better texture and leave in more essential oils.
  • Half the weight of the pasta is from free-range organic eggs.
  • He hangs the pasta to air dry instead of laying it down or heating it in an oven.
  • He only makes about 400 pounds a day, so the details add up.

Where I find a lot of dried egg pastas mushy and bland, this one has a crisp bite and full flavor. Excellent.

Chitarrine is "guitar string," a kind of squared-off spaghetti, a typical shape for the Marché region, where Luigi lives.
