  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.

With a few tweaks I was able to get it right and the family wants more! I substituted milk with cream and added chives to the stuffing. Also, when I realized I had some leftover stuffing left, I...

That was the best! I didn't think that it needed anything done to it. i followed the recipe just like it was and turned out perfect.

My family loved this one! The squid tubes that were available to me were so HUGE that I had to double the filling mixture to fill them. This was not a bad thing :-) Other than that I pretty m...

I followed this recipe very close. The stuffing came good but the sauce was extremely rich. I don't usually count calories if I want to eat delicious food but this is not the problem here, it is...

My problem with this dish: first, calamari needs very little time to cook before it becomes rubbery. So, as written, all that garlic in the stuffing is raw tasting and the very runny sauce does...
