      I'd been wanting to make this for some time, and when I saw cleaned squid tubes at the market, I picked up a couple. I did contact Awalde, who advised that the sauce also needs a cup of water. I used the fresh herbs I had growing in the garden - oregano, thyme, dill - but as I was going out the back door, one of the cats slipped out, and I ended up chasing him to the neighbors' yard. I saw a expanse of fresh mint, and plucked a few sprigs for the stuffing. I also used frozen chopped spinach, a real convenience. I divided the filling between the squid and closed off the ends with tootpicks. The squid fit very nicely into a shallow baking dish. The squid were perfectly done after 45 minutes at 350 deg and looked so very pretty sliced, with the green and white stuffing.
