Squid Ink Spaghetti is popular throughout Italy and is one of our favourite dishes. It is a deep black pasta which looks absolutely stunning when served with seafood or fish. It has an amazing rich briny flavour. Made by quality pasta producer Columbro, who are from the Marche region in Central Italy.
Why not make some Squid Ink Spaghetti with Scallops, Chilli, Tomato and Garlic. Sprinkle generously with fresh parsley and drizzle with a little of our Italian Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil to take the dish to the next level.
Keep things simple so that the flavour of the pasta can really shine!
A Few Cooking Tips
Do it the Italian way and always cook pasta in a large pan of salted, boiling water. If you don’t give the pasta enough space to move in the pan, it will stick together. Italians say the water should be as salty as the sea to flavour the pasta. There is no need to add olive oil to your pasta when cooking. It won’t prevent it from sticking together
In Italy, the pasta and sauce are always combined in the pan to ensure every piece of pasta is coated. Don’t cook the pasta all the way through in the water. Instead, drain it when it still has a little bite, then add to the sauce and continue cooking for a few minutes more until the pasta is cooked and has absorbed a little of the sauce.
When draining the pasta, make sure you save a cup of the pasta water. Then, when you add the pasta to the sauce, splash in a little of the water if it looks too dry. The starch in the water will help the sauce cling to the pasta.
