    canarygirl's Note:

    Don't be put off by the color of the ink! This is one of the best dishes I tried while in Spain, and is well worth the time it takes to prepare. My friend had to convince me to try this one, but once I did, I realized it is one of the finest foods on the face of the Earth!! Try it and see for yourself!
