It can be made with whatever pasta type you chose, but it often served with bucanti, linguini or spaghetti. I don't like bucantini, so I usually choose linguini, spaghetti, gemelli or bavette. Although last night I made it with trofie because I had it in the house. Trofie is usually reserved for Pesto Pasta, but it was delicious.
In my recipe, I've added something that is not part of the standard recipe. I added Cannellini beans. I toast them with the black pepper and I love it. I often find a way to add some protien to my dishes since as a pescatarian, I add it where I can.
People love this pasta. Give it a try, you'll understand why.
