"This is just another excuse to eat 'nduja," says Orr. "It provides the base flavours and umami to tie the other ingredients together. There's nothing too clever about it: prawns, pork and chilli equals good-stuff-to-eat 101. The salinity of the squid ink and freshness from the greens round out the flavours. Gnochetti Sardi is great if you don't have a pasta machine."
