Zebra Bowties Pasta or Farfalline Zebra or Black and White Bowties; a lot of names for these handsome looking bowties pasta. They are handmade in Italy's region of pasta, Puglia, the 'heel of the boot' of Italy.
In making these organic Zebra striped Bowties dehydrated squid ink is used. Unlike some other colored pasta, these bowties will not lose any of the inky black color when cooked.
The Marella family makes pasta the way it was made hundreds of years ago: by hand. This artisan pasta is extruded through a bronze dye giving the dried pasta a rough texture to better hold the sauce, and yellowish powdery appearance making it look more like real food. (Large industrial pasta factories use a more resistant teflon coated steel dye which gives the pasta a smooth white look).
Organic Marella Pasta is a 2013 Silver sofi Award Winner for 'Outstanding Product Line'.
Ingredients:durum wheat, water, black squid ink.
