Calamarata pasta is a pasta that is typical of the culinary tradition of Campania, particularly the city of Naples. Its origin is uncertain, but it is thought to have been created around the 1930s. Initially it was used mainly for seafood dishes, especially with cuttlefish or seafood sauces. Its special shape makes it ideal for retaining sauces and ensuring even cooking.

The best sauces for this type of pasta

Calamarata pasta is perfect with many types of sauce, both from the sea and from the land. Among the seafood sauces, tomato and clam are classic, but always a winning choice. Tomato sauce, perhaps enriched with seafood such as prawns and squid, is perfect for the tubular shape of calamarata. Mussel sauce is another option to try, as is shrimp or prawn cream. For more earthy sauces, try Calamarata with meat sauce or porcini mushroom sauce. In any case, Calamarata pasta can take and enhance all kinds of sauces, creating dishes with a strong and intense flavour.
