Pasta with Calamari

Pasta with Calamari

Calamari and tomatoes go really well together!
Calamari pasta is so delicious.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Tomato
1 large
Calamari (squid)
1 to 2
Pasta
250 g
Olive oil
2 tablespoons
Salt
A pinch
Black pepper or regular pepper
A pinch
Basil (fresh or dried)
As needed
Garlic
1 clove
Hot water (salted)
Boil in a pot

Steps

1. While the water for the pasta is boiling, cut the calamari into edible sizes. Remove but do not throw out the guts.
2. Heat olive oil in a pan and sauté the garlic. Add tomato and dried basil, and continue to sauté.
3. Add the calamari guts when the tomato starts to break apart. When the pasta is just about finished, add the calamari into the pan.
4. Add freshly cooked pasta into the pan and saute lightly as you toss with the sauce. Add fresh basil to finish. You can omit the fresh basil if you want.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love calamari, so even I included its guts for this recipe.
