Surely they are the most particular Chitarrine. Of an intense black that seduces through the food cellophane window, they seem to want to leap out of the straw paper frame to immediately immerse themselves in the cooking water and thus triumph in an even more brilliant black, a real rapture for the eyes. Smelling the cooking steam you can sense that imperceptible scent of cuttlefish ink which makes them so original. Enhanced with white fish-based sauces, they also go very well with vegetables and extra virgin olive oil. To be tasted to understand that Aldo's Pasta is Egg Pasta.
