La Genuina

La Genuina - Orecchiette al Nero di Seppia (Squid Ink) 500g


Orecchiette translates to 'little ears' and are a traditional shape of the Puglia region. The curved shape of the pasta is perfect for trapping and holding sauces and flavours. This version has squid or cuttlefish ink mixed into the dough to produce a black pasta with a subtle seafood taste which is accentuated when served with a seafood-based sauce.


La Genuina produce a range of authentic and traditional Pugliese pasta shapes. They produce in small batches of just 10kg of dough at a time to ensure the quality of each batch. The best quality wheat is selected from a variety of sources around the world, including Puglia, Canada, United States and Australia. 

Many of the process including some of the more unusual shapes are still made by hand. The pasta is slow dried at a low temperatures resulting in a firm texture that shows exceptional resilience during cooking.
