Well Carrol, I never had a chitarra but I still made the pasta and it turend out really good. The chilli pepper in the oil after you drain it gives it a kick. The sauce was an unusual mix of lamb and pork and it was good, I chopped it very small but not quite minced. I wanted to try this as it is a dish I have never heard off before and I like to try things that are a wee bit unusual and this was. Made for PAC spring 2009.
