The dark pasta has some special attractiveness to me that I usually order it if eating out. But the price sometimes wasn't worth it. I bought this pasta again from Trinacria, which is pricey in the pasta category, but much affordable than eating out. I sauteed a lot garlic and pepper flake in olive oil, and quickly toss together the fresh squid and boiled pasta. The taste wasn't too much different from regular pasta, but the color is stunning!
