This Calamari/Squid Marinara is a simple recipe that hails from Italy. Where the Calamari is simmer in a delicious herbed marinara sauce and typically is served over pasta.

This particular dish is made with three types of tomatoes, olive oil, onions, garlic, anchovy pasta and some more herbs and is simply delicious! This is my take on the dish, I hope you give it a try.

You can make this dish more on the sweet side or spicy side, whichever you prefer. Also if your looking for more of a fresh tasting marinara be sure to use only fresh tomatoes, this will also make it more spicy.

If your wanting a somewhat sweet and spicy marinara, then use half italian canned tomatoes, and half fresh tomatoes. Just like I have in the recipe here, I like both versions so I will leave that choice completely up to you. 

Also you can add fresh parmesan cheese right before serving to kick it up a extra notch. And before you know it you’ll eating like the Italians in  Naples!

This Calmari does not come out rubbery, and that is because we are simmering it for 30 minutes in a marinara sauce that helps to tenderizes it. I like to by my squid in tubes fresh from the local fish market, however you can also use frozen pre cut squid that has already been sliced into rings.

The jalapenos and red chili flakes give it a little kick, and works so well with this whole dish. If you prefer less spice, omit the jalapenos only. 

Just ask the Italians, why this dish is always on the dinner table Christmas eve for there 7 fish dinner? They will tell you, it’s not only tradition it’s the best way to really enjoy calamari. Of course every italian family, makes this dish slightly different. So I encourage you to try a few recipes out yourself and see what works for you.
