Black Friday and totally black pasta with salmon and sugar snap peas…




Today is a Black Friday – an official start of Christmas shopping season. Many shops offer great kick off deals 🙂


As often I decided to match my dish with what’s around me:)

In my opinion, this dish looks interesting and it literally matches the BLACK Friday and November’s black sky.

Some of you may think- Are these earthworms? Good news my dears’ it’s just a black pasta.

I like to buy interesting products. This pasta was definitely one of them.

Handmade pasta Maestri Pastai from Mercato San Severino, province Salerno in Italy which I heard is a good place for producing pasta…

I dug a bit more about this producer and I found the following:

Maestri Pastai stands in the market as one of the best producers in the Campania region, of specialty and traditional pasta, offering suggestions and up-to-date tastes. The factory produces various shapes of long and short pasta…
The black pasta was one of their specialties, next to other pastas. i.e. flavored, with cuttlefish, lemon, porcini mushrooms (boletus), artichokes, red pepper, spinach, the beetroot, tomato, turmeric and more for the most discerning palates [1].




– Durum wheat semolina cuttle fish pasta

– Sugar snap peas

– Salmon with skin

– Garlic, 1 clove per person

– Olive oil

– Juice of fresh lemon

– Salt with algae and pepper to taste

– Chives to decorate



It’s really easy!

  1. Boil pasta.
  2. Fry salmon in olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Add squeezed garlic in the last minute of frying, sprinkle with lemon juice.
  3. Decorate with chives.


Let me know what you think of black pasta. I’m curious if you’d like to try something like that:)


Best greetings and have a nice Black Friday,
