The night time pasta night rolls around, skip your go-to jarred sauce and make a flavorful marinara sauce loaded with the fresh flavor of crisp calamari. Pair it with a green salad and bread, for dipping, and you've got a mouthwatering meal.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cut calamari tubes into 1/4-inch-thick rings. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion; sauté 3 minutes or until tender and lightly browned.

Step 2

Add calamari rings and tentacles, broth, and next 5 ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 30 minutes. Add spinach, olives, and pine nuts; simmer 8 minutes or until spinach wilts.

Excellent. Didn't have all ingredients: used 1 lb calamari rings (store brand), subbed dry parsley (3 tsp) for fresh, used sundried tomatoes in place of olives and didn't have spinach or pine nuts (next time i will!). Added bay leaf at onset and 1 drop of oregno e-oil at end. Concerns of over-simmered-calamari-chewy-ness were dimished at first bite. Elegant meal over pasta with little clean up. Way thanks for sharing.
