    Sara 76's Note:

    I came up with this recipe to use up some calamari I had in the freezer. It's great on it's own, or as a topping for steak.

    • 2 teaspoons dried chili pepper flakes
    • 5 garlic cloves, crushed

      Add squid, and cook, stirring, until squid is tender and cooked through (about 4-6 minutes).
    4. 4
      Serve immediately.

      Absolutely delicious! This recipe is so good and really showcased the squid. I wasn't sure what passata was but lo and behold, it was on the grocery store shelf with the pasta sauces! I used the whole bottle of passata (660ml) so I would have enough sauce for our pasta. I cooked the squid for 5 minutes and it was done to perfection! I highly recommend having this on pasta because it really soaked up all the goodness. Made for PRMR. Thanks Sara 76!
