Inspired by the Ikedas, Sandy decided it was time to cook our black ink pasta we purchased from Italy. She challenged me to a black pasta throwdown. We had to acquire our ingredients from the same local store and the dishes had to be ready by 6:00.

Challenger 1: Pilipino Pasta Lover – Sandy Barin-Goya. Sandy made black pasta in shrimp garlic cream sauce.

Challenge 2: Cussing Chef – Grant Goya. I made a black pasta with a Gorgonzola cheese sauce.

The judges deemed it was  a draw. Sandy’s dish was rather bland and mine was way too strong. It actually tasted good when we combined our sauces. We will have a rematch as we have learned valuable lessons, one being it’s impossible to make black pasta look good with a white sauce.
