Fresh Squid Ink Pasta with Anchovy Puttanesca Sauce & Calamari
Enjoy the wonders of Monterey Bay in this fresh inky black pasta with its slightly briny flavor. The puttanesca sauce is simple, fragrant, and savory and pairs well with many types of seafood. You can use our Monterey Bay anchovy boquerones or store-bought anchovies for this recipe.
This recipe's secret "wow" element is anchovies. We especially like our fabulous, house made Monterey Bay anchovy boquerones in this recipe if they're available, but anchovies in a tin from your local store will also bring the "wow."
These cured anchovies - courtesy of Mario Batali - are simple yet elegant. Most of the work is done without you, as the anchovies marinate in a vinegar for several hours before being served just below room temperature.
