They probably do ... but chances are good the name I'd find here if I ran over to the supermarket would be in Greek, and what good will that do you?!

Use the best you can and don't sweat it Gossie!

Okay, I think the name you want is 'bucatini' or at least that's what they call it at Barilla.

There is a possibility that the Greek version has a larger hole though. Does that maybe fall into the category of "everything I ever wanted to know about pastitsio pasta, and more"?!

you can certainly substitute penne. (zitti is a bit too large)

I like Barilla :-) Will look for it next major shopping day. Thanks again, Ayrton :-)

Here's another photo, this time "bucati." It appears to be closer to the Greek pastitcio pasta in that it has a larger central hole (again, the Greek stuff's very much like a drinking straw). However, I can't really confirm that you want to look for "bucati" rather than "bucatini" -- I haven't found a really solid confirmation on the Internet that there is a difference, let alone that the difference is the size of the hole ...

Basically, again, just look for something similar, with as large a hole as you can find. If you find something similar that's mostly solid, however, I'd think it's actually less suitable overall than just switching to penne or some such -- solid pasta would make this dish unpleasant, I'd think.

Let us know, huh?!
