Super easy and delicious! I know that many people don't like squid, but if you do, try this stew! It's a great, different way to prepare squid. I think this is nice just as is, but I'm sure it's also great over noodles. Thanx for posting!
I was not sure how much we would like the squid. I used frozen rings, only 1/2 lb. I have to say - the two of us ate all of this. I used yellow and red peppers instead of green, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. (Oh, did not make the noodles). What a wonderful broth. I think this would also be good with shrimp or fillets of white fish.
Delicious! I used Poblano Chiles instead of green bell peppers because is what I had on hand. It made the dish just spicy enough. The saffron gives lots of lovely flavor. I had some sauce left over, so I added some shrimp, heavy cream and served it over fresh pasta; two wonderful meals. Thank you Evelyn.
