EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Two 28-ounce cans Italian-style pear-shaped tomatoes, drained and chopped, can be substituted for the fresh tomatoes.

Bucatini is a long hollow noodle that resembles a drinking straw. It originated in Naples and the word bucato means, "with a hole."

You can use spaghetti for the bucatini.
