Add South African Flavor to an Italian Dish

Do you love pasta and South African cuisine? We offer you the best of both worlds with our biltong pasta dish. It’s an Italian staple combined with one of South Africa’s favorite tangy snacks, biltong. In just over an hour, you can have this comforting meal steaming with flavor and ready to serve your family.

A mix of strong flavors paired with appetizing textures and you have the perfect meal for a cold winter day. Nothing turns an otherwise ordinary dish into a Mzansi taste sensation like biltong. To ensure your pasta dish is juicy and bursting with flavor, make sure the biltong you use is not dry. The inner part of the biltong should still be red and soft.
