This is definitely a surprise if you’ve never seen it. A beautiful, interesting and striking black dish which always seems to prompt a few questions. It really does have something special and elegant about it, and those who overcome their nervousness about trying it will understand its secure position. There is a general Italian consensus that cheese is not served with fish or seafood pastas and risottos, but naturally you may decide to serve freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
