This dish looks like you slaved over it and has such a rich taste that you don't need any sides. It is a creamy spicy calamari in white wine sauce over pasta. Dinner for two but easily doubled. Serve with the rest of the wine!

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add crushed garlic, and cook for a few seconds until it turns golden brown. Stir in the squid, and cook until it turns white. Pour in white wine and cherry pepper slices; bring to a simmer, and cook until the wine is reduced by half, about 3 minutes.
  3. Stir cornstarch into the cream, and add to the simmering calamari. Season with red pepper flakes, basil, salt, and pepper; stir until thickened. To serve, toss pasta with sauce, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Yummy. I'm always looking for new ways to serve seafood as my husband is a pescatarian (no meat, only seafood). I thought calamari would be a real challenge, and I expected to have to make an alternative meat dish for myself and my 12-year-old son. WRONG! We all loved the dish. I didn't have cherry peppers so I just left them out since previous reviewers thought it too hot anyway...I used a little extra red pepper flakes and a little extra garlic and went liberal with the parmesan when serving. Delicious! We all really loved it. I also used gemelli instead of fettucine and it worked well. I will use it again and I will get the cherry peppers because I think it will only make it better. Thanks!

I read the previous review and decided in order to not make this recipe too hot, I'd use an orange bell pepper instead of the spicy peppers. That may have been a mistake, because I found the recipe to be very bland. The sauce was indeed very thick, pasty and not very tasty. I also thought the recipe should call for more squid. The sauce and pasta were so overwhelming, I had forgotten that this was a calamari recipe. If I were to make it again, I'd double the squid, use 1 tbsp of starch for thickening, and keep the spicy peppers.

A popular dish even with kids! I had bought a bag of 'seafood mix' from Aldi and wasn't sure what to do with it. Had calamari, shrimp and scallops. Made this sauce to go with it although I didn't have the cherry peppers. Served with the pasta for a different and tasty dinner. Thank you!
