The Matsata tagliatelle

ss2 ingredients

The pasta I used for this recipe is called Matsata. It is Greek pasta made in Folegandros under the Tagliatelle pasta category.

They are very tasty and they only need 4 minutes for al dente. Ignore the instruction on the package that says 10 minutes boiling time or else you will eat overcooked pasta! I have cooked them with many Greek traditional dishes at 4 minutes boiling time and they were absolutely delicious every time.
