The pasta with a hole in it is called Bucatini.

Bucatini pasta is a thick spaghetti like pasta that has a hole that runs through the center.

Bucatini pasta, also known as perciatelli pasta, is a thick spaghetti-like pasta with a hole running through the center of it.

The Bucatini pasta is common throughout Lazio, particularly Rome.

The similar ziti consists of long hollow rods which are also smooth in texture and have square-cut edges; "cut ziti" are ziti cut into shorter tubes.

Where spaghetti or linguine get coated with sauce, bucatini gets coated and filled with sauce.

It's the ultimate type of pasta for velvety pasta sauces like cacio e pepe or carbonara.

The hollow center of bucatini pasta gives you more sauce with each bite.

Substitutes. If a recipe calls for bucatini and you can't find it at the store, you can substitute with spaghetti, spaghettoni (thicker spaghetti), or fettuccini in a pinch.

While you won't be able to slurp up the pasta in the same way, the sauce and pasta will still be a satisfying meal.
