Dive into a quick and unique dinner idea with our Squid Ink Gemelli Pasta! Made with squid ink for its cool color and salty, ocean-y flavor notes, Squid Ink Gemelli Pasta pairs perfectly with veggie and shellfish favorites like shrimp, lobster and asparagus, and is also delicious on its own in a spicy tomato sauce. Mysteriously dark black in color, these small pasta twists make dinner edgy and fun, while sticking to sauce with ease for tons of flavor in every bite.
How to Cook Squid Ink Gemelli Pasta
Bring four quarts of salted water to a boil. Add the entire bag of Squid Ink Gemelli Pasta. Continue to boil on high heat, stirring occasionally. Once the water returns to a rolling boil (approx. two minutes) lower the heat. Continue cooking for 5-7 minutes, checking for doneness. Drain pasta and mix with sauce as desired.
Our Artisanal Pastas In A Nutshell
Everybody loves pasta! But believe it or not, it’s not all the same. We specially chose our artisanal pasta supplier from a New Jersey-based, family owned business with a passion for pasta. For over 45 years, these specialty pasta makers have been carefully handcrafting their premium pastas using 100% semolina flour in every small batch.
Conventional Pastas vs. Artisanal Pastas
The last box of conventional pasta (or dry pasta) you picked off your pantry probably held shiny, golden colored noodles that were smooth in texture. When cooking pasta dishes, you actually want the opposite! Artisanal pastas are extruded through a bronze die and made with a super-coarse grind of durum wheat, which allows the pasta to dry more slowly and at a lower temperature than conventional pastas. This process makes artisanal pastas chalkier in color and rougher in texture which results in a richer-tasting, chewier-textured pasta that easily clings to sauces of all sorts. Bon appetit!
Ratings & Reviews
Love "black pasta" and these are wonderful cooked with a puttanesca sauce (or any sauce you like). I wish your pasta source would offer squid ink linguini or fettuccini. Meanwhile these gemelli are delicious - sometimes I mix them with the radiator too. So glad you offer them in big 2-lb bags now!R, Brighton, MA
