Insects are consumed by 80% of the population in Asia and South America. Finally, western countries are catching up and appreciating this healthy and sustainable superfood. Insects are not that odd, compared to cheese mold, snails, frogs and oysters, they’re practically ordinary! Crickets are actually very similar anatomically to shrimps, and they have fantastic food properties. That’s why we made a pasta out of them! For example…

We cooked it with squids, garlic, chive, kampot green pepper and green lime juice. It was absolutely delicious, my friends loved it! We’ll try it with other recipes soon.

I sautéed a portion with olive oil & tomato sauce and topped with parmesan: the pasta absorbed the sauce very well, and it was very rich, delicious. Then I had a a portion with olive oil and tomato sauce, chili, spices & black olives and it was perfect as well. My wife and kids ate all of it, and they said they would eat it again.
Because of the nutty taste I paired it with a cream and mushroom sauce. It worked great. The pasta has a slight earthy effect that matches the mushroom taste perfectly. Apart from the nutritional properties, this pasta is simply good
The noodles tasted mild, with nothing weird going on, and had the proper firm, smooth texture, with no crunch unless prepared al dente. The insect content added intrigue.
The cricket pasta is delicious! I made it with tomato sauce last night, went down a treat.
