WILD BIRD'S NEST (Black spaghetti with tomato sauce)


  • 400 g of squid ink spaghetti
  • Butter
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • Tomato sauce
  • Quail eggs


For the tomato sauce:

  • 400 g fresh tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 onion
  • Olive oil
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Pepper





  • Cook the eggs in salted water, shell, and reserve.
  • Blanch the tomatoes, remove the skin and seeds.
  • Dice the tomato, this helps it to cook more quickly.
  • To make the sauce, first sauté the onion and two cloves of garlic, finely chopped, in a small amount of oil.
  • When well sautéed, add the diced tomato and leave to cook for a while. We want a thick sauce, so we need to wait for any liquid to evaporate.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste and sugar to balance out the acidity.
  • Cook the spaghetti in salted boiling water. Cook for one minute less than the recommended time, as we are going to sauté the spaghetti afterwards.
  • Immediately before serving, sauté the spaghetti with the butter and chopped garlic. If you like it spicy, add a little bit of chilli.
  • Put on plates as shown in the photo for that "Halloween touch".
