1 (16 ounce) package
uncooked linguine pasta
squid, cleaned and sliced into rings
This was delicious. I was able to get frozen calamari rings and it was quicker to make because the calamari only cooked for 3 minutes. I added some dried italian spices one time and fresh basil another. Both times my family LOVED it.
Once you've tried Calamari w/garlic, herbs and tomato sauce, If you enhoy calamari, I can't imagine you wouldn't be hooked.
I have ate fried calamari most of my adult life but never ate it any other way. I had the fortunate opportunity to have calamari w/garlic, herbs and tomatoe sauce at Catch 35 in Chicago as an appetizer recently. I don't think I will ever eat fried calamari again. Excellent!
This is a good recipe, but it is much nicer when made with fresh tomatoes. Just blanch and peel the tomatoes and then slice, instead of using the paste. Before adding the squid, I took the sauce and ran it through a food processor to make it more sauce-like. Will use again (and already have!)
Excellent recipe, fresh tomatoes definitely adds flavour, try to make tiny cubes if you want more texture. I also grilled a red capsicum in the oven and added it to the sauce(until the skin is black, put it in a sealed container in the fridge and skin when cool). Top it with fresh thyme. If you don't have red wine Balsamico vinegar can do the job. I found that 5 minutes for the squid was enough.
This was just OK. Not super impressed.
