Homemade Squid Ink Pasta Is a Recipe You've Gotta Make at Least Once (and a Good Excuse to Buy a Pasta Roller)

When squid ink (also called cuttlefish ink) is added to pasta dough, you not only get a black-colored pasta, but a flavorful one as well. Think salty and sweet. If you're feeling adventurous, here's an easy recipe to try.

You'll need: 

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the flour into a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the whole eggs, yolks and squid ink.
  3. Slowly incorporate the egg-squid ink mixture into the flour with your hands until it creates a dough.
  4. Knead the dough until it becomes smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Form into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour.
  5. After the hour, remove the dough from the fridge and allow it to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  6. With a rolling pin, roll the pasta dough so it fits into a pasta roller.
  7. Pass the dough through the pasta roller until you achieve desired thickness.
  8. Using a pasta cutter or sharp knife, cut the dough into desired pasta (spaghetti noodles, fettuccine, pappardelle, etc.)
  9. Cook the dough in boiling, salted water until al dente or desired doneness. Serve with your favorite pasta sauce.

I've never eaten squid ink pasta. Didn't know it was so easy to make. Have no idea what I anticipate it to taste like, but always up for new food adventures.
