It’s so much fun going to ethnic food shops and there’s an Italian deli in Burbank where I found this beautiful organic artisan linguini from Puglia, Italy. It’s colored with beetroot, turmeric, spinach, and paprika.
The dough is hand-crafted, extruded through bronze dyes and then air dried. I couldn’t bring myself to cover up this beautiful pasta with a red sauce so I decided to use a simple olive oil & garlic mix so you could still see the stunning design and colors, not to mention what an awesome and healthy topping this is for any pasta. It’s a simple recipe which I’ll be posting next week. Oh… I almost forgot… the contest:
~ Whoever comes closest, whether over or under, wins my cookbook.
~ The winner will be posted Tuesday. Good luck!
