    ChefDebs's Note:

    This is a really nice way to prepare calamari as opposed to frying it. Make sure you have plenty of french bread to mop up the juices.

      This was a very nice use of calamari. I didn't take the time to roast the garlic and it was still very flavorful. I really liked the flavors from the ancho and parsley which paired well with the acid from the limes. Will absolutely make this this again.

      This was pretty good. I noticed a taste from the canned diced tomatos... Next time I'll use fresh and I'm sure it will be better. But after eating the leftovers the next day, the canned taste wasn't there any more!! I didn't have capers or the one pepper. I only gave it 4 stars because I still felt it was missing something. I would have like a veggie or two more in it. But still a great base recipe to get creative with and make your own! Also, go with your gut with how long to cook at the end. There were plenty of juices so I just let it boil until the calarami tasted done. Still plenty of sauce left for my bread.

      BTW, I've never used wine to cook so I had to do research. I ended up getting Sutter Home Pinot Grigio from the little 4 pack bottles. One mini bottle is just more than what the recipe calls for so it's a great way avoid wasting a large bottle.

      My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. I followed it as written, and it was easy to prepare and did not get overcooked or chewy. It is a spicy, flavorful, and lighter alternative to fried calamari. I served it with garlic toasts and a simple mixed greens salad. Thanks for sharing this one!
