Pasta Negra aka The dark side of pasta love

Pasta Negra | Seafood spaghetti in squid ink sauce

It is a tradition in the Philippines (and other Asian countries) to serve noodles during birthdays. The longer the noodles the longer and luckier the birthday celebrant’s life will be. Happy birthday, JD, my wonderful partner-in-crime! JD is an adventurous soul so this black pasta is an appropriate birthday dish.  Plus it is really very yummy you yourself won’t regret embracing the dark side!

I was delighted to find squid ink packets at the supermarket. They cost dearly considering they are part of the squid when we buy it from fish markets in the Philippines. I got this recipe from a French-speaking Swiss named François-Xavier. His food blog is Web 1.0 but you’ll find a treasure of out-of-the-ordinary recipes.
