We met chef Filippa in Messina, Sicily who showed us how to make a real squid ink spaghetti. She told us that her grandma taught her how to make it and it's a common recipe where she lives, in fact she makes it in her restaurant everyday. It's not that difficult you just need fresh squid, the best quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil and tomato sauce and then the flavor is exquisite! Filippa loved making her recipe with Papa Vince products because the Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) made the pasta shine and the tomato sauce is not acidic, it's the quality that counts!
We love this recipe because it contains our favorite pasta with a healthy, seasonal vegetable that is perfect for Fall. We add in lots of raw garlic which certainly adds to the flavor of the dish but it also boosts your immune system which is so important during the change of seasons.
