Squid Ink Pasta with Fried Shrimp and Scampi Scallops

What the hell is Squid Ink Pasta? The dark pasta is black from the ink extracted from the sack of an ocean squid. This extremely easy recipe has a unique “right off the boat” flavor. In other words, you and your guests must be fish people. If you’re that kind of guy, this recipe is for you.

 

PRZ TIP: Squid ink pasta will take the same time to cook as regular fresh pasta. Cook for about 3-6 minutes.
