Calamarata

Thick rings of pasta similar to calamari.

A Napolitan classic very similar to Paccheri, but cut shorter to resemble calamari rings. Not surprisingly, they are used in one of the best known calamari dishes in Campania.

On the plate

Given their aesthetic and thick gauge, nothing is better than treating calamarata to a bright, tomato-based seafood medley, spiked with some white wine and garlic. For something exceptional, try our calamarata nera made with cuttle fish ink.
