Would be bucatini — my new love. I have eaten this variety of pasta in Italian restaurants, but had not seen it in the grocery store until recently. It is part of the new-ish Giada De Laurentiis line at Target, and it is fantastic. It’s like a very thick spaghetti with a hole running through the middle, so you can imagine the delight of my children when they discovered how much of a mess they could create while eating this food. I used this bucatini when trying out my second recipe of 2012 — Allison Fishman’s Linguine Vongole from her book, “You Can Trust a Skinny Cook”. It is a simple and wonderful clam sauce over pasta. You simply cannot go wrong with garlic, olive oil, and white wine. Period.
