What type of pasta cut is "tonnarelli"?


One of my favorite noodle cuts is tonnarelli. It is as thick as it is wide, thus a cross section of it would be square. Its slightly greater thickness gives it the wonderful firmness and bite of spaghetti, but its surface has the texture and fine saucing qualities of all homemade pastas.
