Scallops over Squid Ink pasta

I served this to some friends and while they were unsure about the squid ink pasta everyone seemed to like it a lot. Squid ink pasta over a sun dried tomato pesto and topped with seared scallops!

  • Scallops look great.  Is that just butter you seared them in?  Is there a sauce you put on the noodles or do you just use black squid pasta noodles?

    Yep, just butter. I picked up some banner butter at my local Whole Foods and used it. For the pasta I ordered some squid ink from Amazon and then made my pasta and added the squid ink.

  • Outstanding. Love seafood on the egg. SWMBO doesn't like scallops, so I don't cook them here. But that's enough to make me want to cook for one!

    I am impressed!  I have had squid ink pasta several times and love it.  Those scallops are off the chain!  Fantastic looking cook!
  • I'm guessing that was not your first rodeo. Scallops look absolutely perfect and I'm just fascinated by the pasta. Really impressive.

    That is a great looking cool, and homemade pasta is awesome. I would have thought the sundried toms would be a pretty strong flavor with the scallops. How did that work?

    I was alittle concerned going in that the pesto would be alittle to much. I went “light” with it and of course gave it the pre plate test to make sure it was going to be good for everyone else. Surprisingly it contrasted very well. I’ve got some ideas for the next round.
