Sometimes I can think of some unusual pairings for would define, like this pasta with black cabbage sauce and squid. When at home I said I wanted to experience the pairing, They skeptics are shown. Once you tasted the dish, they did an encore. Because the taste of this paste is quite extraordinary: the sweet squid, tasty dried tomatoes, the cabbage that gives the aroma so characteristic herbaceous. The paccheri adapt perfectly to the gravy, that slips inside the pasta in a taste explosion. If you prefer a long pasta, I do not recommend the spaghetti and you would say to orient more toward spaghetti square, that takes the sauce better.

I think this pasta with black cabbage sauce and calamari is perfect for Sunday lunch. And it is a viable alternative, creative but on a solid traditional base, the classic Spaghetti WITH CLAMS (that on my YouTube channel also find the VIDEO RECIPE step by step) o al RESOTTO TO PESCATORA, that in any case I love very much and that is always a great classic.

Among other things, with this dish bring to the table a first fish at a relatively lower price than the usual dishes shellfish and crustaceans. At this point, I would tell you to save the recipe and have a look at all my RECIPES WITH SQUIDS and all my RECIPES WITH BLACK CABBAGE. Have a good day!
