I forgot to mention that at the Paolo Sarpi street fair we picked up a bag of ‘cocoa’ flavoured pasta. It’s brown, as you would expect and is real pasta, not just chocolate dressed up to look like pasta.
We have not tried it yet, but apparently it goes very will with ‘salsa di noci’, which I believe is walnut sauce.
I’ll let you know what choccy pasta is like, once I know. Very odd though, is it not?
