Maccheroni " Alla Chitarra"

This spicy recipe comes from the Province of Teramo, Abruzzo, Italy and the "chitarra" (guitar string-shaped pasta), is made with an 'instrument' shaped like a guitar that is easy to find in any market in Abruzzo. I am posting this dish from Abruzzo as part of the Food, Friends, and Family game. None of the other Italian recipes already posted here reflect the special foods created in this region on the south west coast. NOTE*** The original recipe didn't say if the lamb and pork were ground or chopped so you can prepare it according to your choice. If you do not happen to own one of the "chitarra" guitar shaped instruments for cutting, just cut the pasta into long narrow strips which are about 24 inches long. The flavors will be the same.
