Zia Pia - Black Squid Ink Spaghetti by La Fabbrica della PastaRegular price $18.00 Save $-18.00
Squid ink gives this spaghetti its beautiful dark hue and rich flavor, with a hint of sea saltiness. The savory properties of squid ink come from its high content of glutamate, an umami compound, which makes this pasta exceptionally flavorful, perfect for pairing with seafood or a light tomato sauce. La Fabbrica della Pasta has been making pasta for three generations in Gragnano, a small town nestled in the hills near Naples, famous for its pasta production for over 500 years. Pasta from Gragnano is very special: made with local spring water and high-protein Durum wheat which helps keep the pasta al dente, then extruded through a bronze die, giving the pasta a porous texture that helps it bind with sauce, and dried slowly at a low temperature. Net weight: 500 g/1.1 lb Ingredients: Durum wheat semolina, water, sepia ink
