Maccarrones de busa

Macarrones de busa is a typical pasta of Sardinian cuisine and in particular of the Nuoro area. It takes its name from the iron, the busa or ferrittu, or knitting needle, with which they are prepared, strictly by hand. Sardinian housewives tried to make the pasta in various ways using the few ingredients available.

The dough, made from water, salt, flour, oil and egg in some recipes, is left to rest and picked up by cutting out small cylinders that are then placed on the iron and rolled back and forth to form a sort of 'bucatini'. It is seasoned to taste with meat sauces, with mushrooms or even with pecorino cheese and walnuts.
