PRETTY PASTA

We have the Chocobarocco Festival in Modica this week and I was fascinated to come acoss these pretty, multicolured lasagne by CioMod.  The sheets are made from the hard wheat flour of Puglia and the colours are worked by our Modican chocolate makers, using cocoa, spinach, beetroot,  paprika and turmeric.  I can't wait to try this in a recipe!

A lovely combination of colours. I hope we get some in Toronto. Please, post the recipe and a photo, when you use it.

I'd have to say that they are also just the right pasta for xmas. You can never have enough color on the dinner table!

Very festive - you could "wrap" a ribbon of green cabbage around it?

Hi, Sally. Yes, it does, doesn't it? Hi, Laura. I expect they will export it soon. Hi, Claude. I will. Hi, lakeviewer. I'm always amazed at their innovations! Hi, Rowena. You are right. Good idea, WW! Welcome back, btw. I'm sure it will taste good, Lucia. Simi says be sure to bring George, Liz! Hi, Nerys. I'm sure it will make its way up North soon. Indeed they do, James.
