Spaghetti Chitarra Senatore Cappelli might break when cooked. Some boxes had this problem, other boxes didn’t. We couldn’t understand why. What was the problem? It is complicated. Carlo Latini, the agronomist and the pasta maker, can talk for hours about it. It has to do with temperature swings during the drying process of the pasta. When you cook the pasta and it breaks (in pieces sometimes only as long as a toothpick), the pasta is still great; but it doesn’t look like you think it should. If your spaghetti broke, call us (718 860 2949) or email us and we’ll either refund your order or send you Spaghetti Chitarra from the new production which is problem free.
