Pasta coated in black squid ink sauce (Spaghetti al Nero di Seppia) is something you either love or hate. I do happen to love this Italian dish for its umami deliciousness, but I’m really self-conscious about eating it outside as it is quite messy (think black-stained lips!) So I tried making my own at home.

Even though my version do not have the lovely jet black shade like the ones I ate at restaurants, (mine has a dark brownish tinge), the taste is good and the ink is not as staining.

Squid Ink Pasta

Credits: I learnt this squid ink sauce recipe from an Italian chef recently, who verbally taught me the ingredients and steps involved in making this dish. I’m not crediting his name only because I don’t think I did his recipe any justice, and also since we are just acquaintances, I will feel bad if I bother him for the exact measurements or feedback about my dish. I’m definitely grateful to the chef for graciously sharing his culinary expertise with a noob cook – thank you!

    I have not tried squid ink pasta before so I don’t know if I will like it. But since you mentioned its umami flavors, I think I will like it.

    Haha, black-stained lips? Fashion mah! :P

    I love squid ink pasta or risotto and would risk the black lips to enjoy that anytime! I really want to get my hands on squid ink but no idea where to find in Malaysia. :( Do you know how much it is roughly in Singapore?

    That looks so good! I’ve only seen squid ink in the store once and I wondered what it would be used for

    I’ve seen people eating this at Italian restaurants but have always stayed away for the same reasons as you do. The mess! Black stained lips and strategically placed bleck splotches on my dress isn’t my idea of a good eat out. haha.. But I never tasted it, hence, never knew what it is like. You’ve inspired me to try this at home.
