Watch Le Virtù's Chef Make 'Abruzzese Couscous'

Check out the entirely mesmerizing process by which chef Joe Cicala of Le Virtù makes frascarill', a rarely seen Abruzzese pasta that's likened to couscous. It's this week's entry in the restaurant's "rare pasta series," which will showcase a rotating cast of pasta varieties Cicala's picked up on his travels throughout Italy.

The frascarill' dish is available now through Saturday; to keep abreast of what's coming up, you can follow the restaurant and keep an eye out for the #rarepastas hashtag. And if you want more, you can also check out this video of Cicala learning to make Le Virtù's famous signature maccheroni alla mugnaia.
