  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Rinse the calamari tubes and pat dry.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the onions, 6 cloves of the garlic, shrimp, crabmeat and lemon juice. Spoon some of this mixture into each squid tube and seal the ends by 'sewing' with a toothpick. Arrange in a single layer in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in cream cheese and 2 cloves of garlic. Cook and stir until cream cheese has melted. Gradually whisk in the milk. Cook until heated through and then remove from the heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese and pepper. Pour over all of the calamari tubes in the baking dish. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of Romano cheese on top of each one.
  4. Bake uncovered until the cheese is browned and sauce is bubbly. While the calamari is baking, Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add linguine pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain. Serve the stuffed calamari and sauce over a bed of linguine.

Even though this recipe sounds like it would be delicious, it left my family very dissapointed. The cream sauce was weak and the overall texture was unapealing. It took an awful lot of time to prepare and the overall cost to prepare this meal is a bit too expensive for it to be so dissapointing. Skip this one, a traditional alfredo sauce made with heavy whipping cream is far superior than using cream cheese. That was a mistake.


I found this recipe to be "absolutely delicious"! I did a few things differently but nothing that would dramatically alter the results. Instead of mixing, I sauteed the shrimp, crab, green onions, garlic and lemon juice together with a little olive oil. I also added a few extra green onions to the mix and a little salt and pepper. I thought the sauce was excellent as well. I might put in a little less milk next time but the taste was wonderful and everyone I served had seconds. The only negative is that it is a time consuming process but well worth it if you're aiming to make an impressive, flavorful meal. I am making this again tonight!

I sort of tweaked this recipe somewhat, as I always do. Used chicken instead of crab meat, slightly panfried in butter with a little chopped chilli and some bell pepers. Threw a few spoons of sour cream into the stuffing. Turned out quite nice in the end. However, I'm always a bit critical about my own cooking, thus I'll give this one 4 stars... Just remember that you never want to over-cook calamari. Fifteen minutes at most in a rather high oven, completely covered with this sort of Alfredo sauce.
