These noodles are made with the machine and a new die we have been working with which looks like 3 tubes of bucatini fused together. The shape is one we have not seen before so we are shooting blind in both tradition and uses. This is a good place to be because we can write our own history. We can work with lengths, textures and flavors and find what works for a particular dish without being constrained by what has been, should be or what we think we know.
