    Default Tagliolini al Barolo - what to do with it?

    I've bought some of this, looked on the net, and the only thing I can find
    is Italians wondering what to do with it -- the only thing I see suggested
    is seafood, and I'd rather not do that. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Try a Barolo( or any red) braised beef/lamb to go with the pasta. A marinara
    would also be nice

    From wikipedia: Since tagliatelle are generally made as fresh pasta, the
    texture is porous and rough, making it ideal for thick sauces, generally
    made with beef, veal, or pork, and occasionally with rabbit, as well as
    several other less rich (and more vegetarian) options; such as briciole
    e noci (with breadcrumbs and nuts), uovo e formaggio (with eggs and
    cheese - a less rich carbonara), or simply pomodoro e basilico (with
    tomatoes and basil

    The pasta was very expensive and I don't want to overwhelm its taste - I
    agree a thick sauce would be a good idea.

    Serve the pasta with sautéed mushrooms (an assortment of fresh) a small
    amount of garlic and olive oil.

    Use cheese sparingly if at all so as not to overpower the pasta.

    I would be tempted to cook a few strands and taste to understand the flavor
    of the pasta.

    It is just pasta flavoured with Barolo, so just serve it with something
    going well with this combination, such as ragù of some kind, perhaps the
    piemontese kind.

    What exactly did you buy? A dried pasta made with Barolo? Don't know why
    they would do that, but cook a piece and taste it and if it tastes of
    anything special, then we can figure out what to do with it.

    It may be available in specialty shops of Piemonte, but I have never seen it
    in a food shop in Umbria.

    I wonder how much difference the flavoring of the pasta makes, not that
    I've ever tried that one. Colored pastas using spinach and tomato look
    attractive before being cooked but the colors seem to wash out and the
    taste is hard to notice except with the very simplest of sauuces.

    That black squid ink stuff tastes of it. Sometimes pasta made at home with
    things included taste of them, but then you'd never do anything strong on
    them.
    Barolo is expensive here, so it's weird to me to make pasta with it. I
    certainly don't braise pot roasts in it just so I can use the name.

    I have a vague recollection about the squid ink stuff but I don't think
    I've ever tried it. What's its official name?

    I don't think it has one official name. You put put ink in anything you're
    making. I don't like it.
    I have made pasta with artichoke powder and served it with butter and
    parmigiano. That was good.

    You have mentioned that before. Just how much does it cost there?

    Around here, I haven't seen Barolos as inexpensive as Australian
    Shirazes but the prices have been about $15 upwards (very!)

    In Italian, it is "nero di seppia", nothing official or unofficial about
    it.

    That is what I would expect, but I am waiting to see what Giusi says.

    Why are you crossposting this to uk.food+drink.misc?

    Are you trying to food a British group with unwanted American postings?

    Yes, I have stopped bothering, concealing flavour inside seems pointless.

    Is that not the name of the flavoring rather than the pasta? I've seen
    everything from orecchiette to tortellini made blackish.
