I went with my friend to one of those tiny takeout places several years ago, near Cooper Union if I remember correctly. However, I can't remember where it is. Anyone know where I'm talking about, or can suggest another place? Thanks.
The most important step of this dramatic squid ink pasta from F&W BNC Katie Button is toasting the noodles. This step gives the pasta a nutty flavor, but also helps it maintain the perfect al dente texture while cooking undisturbed like a paella.
