Fresh Black Squid Ink Pasta by the Pound

per pound

Raffetto’s Pasta ships its famous pasta nationwide on Goldbelly! Made from a century-old recipe using durum flour, fresh whole eggs, imported squid ink, and water, Raffetto’s squid ink pasta is gently kneaded in traditional old-fashioned lamination style to give it strength and lightness. Select your favorite cut, which Raffetto’s cuts fresh-to-order on their 1916 hand-operated pasta machine the day Raffetto’s ships it to you.

Raffetto’s Pasta has been making fresh pasta, cut to order, since 1906. Founded by Marcello Raffetto, Raffetto’s still makes the same fresh egg noodles and Genoa-style meat and spinach ravioli that it made when it opened in New York City’s Greenwich Village. Today, fourth-generation Raffetto family members keep the Old World tradition alive in Raffetto’s 50 pasta flavors, cut using the same manual pasta-cutting machine since 1916. No matter if you order ravioli, gnocchi, or squid ink pasta, it’s authentic Italian perfection in every bite.

Instructions / Storage

Storage & Care:
Refrigerate pasta immediately upon delivery. Any pasta not eaten within 2 days of delivery should be frozen. All of Raffetto’s pasta can be frozen up to 2 months, and if stored frozen should be cooked frozen.

The amount of salt in the water is very important. Raffetto’s does not put any salt in the dough; therefore it is critical to add salt to the water for maximum flavor. Add approximately 1½ tbsp. of salt per 10-qt pot, and cook 3-4 minutes. After straining the pasta, Raffetto’s suggests tossing your pasta in a small amount of olive oil to keep it from sticking. Avoid “shocking” the pasta with cold water as that will wash away some of the flavor.

I was able to get exactly what I wanted -- fresh, traditionally made pasta from Brooklyn, and it was delivered on time, very fresh and tasty.

The pasta was really good, easy to heat up, and came well packaged. The only criticism of this website would be that it's a little pricey for the amount of food and takes a long time to arrive.
