I am planning to make squid ink pasta, but I do not have pasta machine. Since I am lazy, I want to boil dried pasta in squid ink water. Will it turn black...or not black enough?

    You can make hand rolled squid ink pasta. Then you wouldn't need a pasta machine and you could have black pasta. – moscafj May 23 '19 at 19:45

  • In that case, you can certainly purchase squid ink pasta. – moscafj May 24 '19 at 10:40

Boiling it in ink will give some flavor and color, but it won't be part of the pasta. Instead, you could make a squid ink-based sauce to toss it in afterwards. Here's an example recipe: https://www.thespruceeats.com/spaghetti-al-nero-di-seppia-2018653

  • I planned to mix it in hollandaise-carbonara situation which was a bad idea. Yours is better solution – LordSacha May 24 '19 at 4:14
