Question about homemade squid ink pasta

Tom from Durham | Sep 16, 2004 01:27 PM

Hey folks,

I have a hankering to try to make squid ink pasta from scratch. Problem is, my local stores don't have packets of squid ink. They *do* have canned squid in its own ink--Vigo brand, to be precise. I bought two cans.

My question is, will I be able to salvage enough ink from those cans to make pasta for 2? Also, will the presence of other ingedients in the can--some spices, which I'm not worried about, and some oil, which I am worried about--undermine any efforts at successful homemade pasta? The reason I ask is, I've never used oil to make pasta before--just eggs and flour.

Thanks for your help!
