This is called Orro Napoli. Orro de Napoli it's [FOREIGN]. What I like are [FOREIGN], [FOREIGN], Barilla, this one, and [FOREIGN]. It's worth spending an extra buck a bag, or even two bucks.

Buy a pasta that's [UNKNOWN] made, extruded through bronze dye, and dried very slowly. What it does, in addition to tasting better and being better for you, it also gives you a window of over cooking this. If you miss it by 30 seconds and it's an American pasta, it will turn into cremates. If you miss an Italian pasta by thirty seconds, it's still damn good. [LAUGH] [BLANK_AUDIO]
