    Pilates Gal's Note:

    Another family recipe I got from Italian friends while living in Naples. This is so easy if you can find the squid.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 lbs squid, cleaned
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 tablespoons minced parsley
    • 2 tablespoons minced celery
    • 2 tablespoons minced onions
    • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, see notes
    • 4 tablespoons virgin olive oil, divided
    • salt and pepper


    1. 1
      Remove tenticles and leave the body whole. Saute the onion, celery and garlic in half the olive oil. Chop the tentacles fine and saute them for a few minutes. Add the parsley and bread crumbs, mixing well. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      Stuff the squid, but not too much, and close the opening with a toothpick. They will shrink during the cooking and if stuffed too full they'll split open. Saute them in the bottom of a heavy pot in a little olive oil on all sides.
    3. 3
      Pour your favorite marinara sauce over and cook for about 45 minutes, over very low heat, until tender. You can make this ahead and reheat it - it gets even better.

      this was very yummy, i didn't saute the squid though in olive oil. i sauteed onions and then put tomato sauce in it with some herbs, then i put the stuffed squid in it and baked it for 35 minutes 180 degrees. It was yummy , the squid very tender.
