Cthulhu Pasta

Cthulhu Pasta

For this months geeky recipe I decided I would cook the cosmic horror known as Cthulhu.

That is not dish which can eternal lie, and after strange aeons even death may dine.

 

The Recipe

Serves three Innsmouthians.

1. Tenderise 300 grams of octopus, either by beating the crap out of it, or by freezing and thawing it.

Chop it in pieces and boil it until it is tender, for about 20 to 45 minutes.

Or just buy it tinned.

 

2. Make octopus ragù.

You can do this by using a normal bolognaise recipe, but exchange the meat with octopus.

 

3. Boil 250 grams of fresh tagliatelle pasta.

During the last few minutes of boiling, add 120 grams of chopped kale.

It is possible to replace the kale with seaweed.

 

4. Fry up 130 grams of diced smoked bacon.
