Wacko Jacko Squid Ink Pasta

Necessity is the mother of invention, and tonight necessity manifested itself when we had a whole calamari but only half a packet of squidink pasta, which wouldn’t have been sufficient for either of us. So rather than suffer a miserly meal, we decided to toss in a portion of regular spaghetti into the pot and the result was a fairly odd-looking calamari pasta dish.

The result was nothing but delicious as we both lapped up all that was heaped on our plates. I suppose Wacko as Jacko may be, there was some evidence of wisdom in his famous words – “it don’t matter if you’re black or white” (or both)!
