Squid Ink Pasta with Tomatoes

I did it! I made squid ink pasta with garlic and tomatoes and now I am obsessed! Those silky black noodles are oh-so-dramatic looking and taste like the sea. Not to mention, it was beautiful to shoot.

This recipe is super easy to make and absolutely delicious. I think next time I’ll add seafood. And, then I want to make my own at home just to see what happens. Do you make your own pasta? I have a post that shares how I made homemade pasta with my Vitamix! Be sure to check it out.

Recipe Notes

  1. No salt needed. The squid ink pasta is naturally salty on its own.
  2. I used Framore Spaghetti for this shoot and recipe.
  3. If making your own pasta, you’ll need Cuttlefish Ink.
  4. For the presentation, consider serving on matte black stoneware plates.
