Black Shell Seafood Pasta


A Note from Feedfeed

We threw the Ultimate Comforta-Bowl Throdown at FeedfeedBrooklyn with our friends at Tuttorosso Tomatoes and we invited three New York City chefs to participate in a friendly showdown for the title of the best bowl. This dish, Black Shell Seafood Pasta, was by Chef Jason Hall of Legasea, and people would not stop talking about these delicious squid ink shells!
