Squid Ragu, Kale, Burrata & Breadcrumbs

There was so much right here with this dish, but it just didn’t pop. Sotto¬†was the inspiration for this meal, and our trip to the grocery store marks where it started to go wrong. We set out to create a spicy octopus ragu with black kale. There was no black kale. There was no octopus. In a scramble, we switched to regular kale and squid. Neither substitute lived up to what we were hoping for.

I found a few recipes for squid and octopus ragu, and they all spoke about a long slow cooking of the squid in a broth. I was slightly concerned that this long cooking (roughly 40 minutes) would make our squid rubbery and overcooked. That fear was unfortunately realized.

All of the components were there, squid, a ragu sauce, delicious burrata, and breadcrumbs, but each bite left us wanting more. We’ll have to try it again to see if we can pull this off correctly!
