Black Spaghetti - Spaghetti al Nero di Seppia

Black Spaghetti a.k.a. Spaghetti al Nero di Seppia a.k.a. Spaghetti with Squid Ink.

I know it looks like a steaming bowl of long, black worms (or black shoestring licorice) - but actually it is quite tasty. And actually it tastes very similar to "regular" spaghetti.

This little 8 1/2 oz package of pasta cost $3.99 and I bought it from Marshall's Department Store (the pasta is made in Italy).

The kids loved the pasta and I think loved the fact that it was black - how cool is that for kids?

What I thought was cool was the shape the individual pasta was before cooking...they reminded me of old fashioned hair/bobby pins.

I guess IF I were starving I would eat it...I agree with your definition of it.

It looks yummy. I bet it would look really cool in a primavera with lots of brightly colored veggies.
