Pasta with squid and cherry tomatoes Quick and easy recipe |
Pasta with squid and cherry tomatoes: a really simple dish, perfect for Sunday lunches based on fish, is quick to prepare and the result is always exceptional. This time I cooked with my very knowledgeable mother fish dishes. Try it!
Ingredients for 4 people
- 400 gr of pasta (I chose Calamarata or Pàccheri)
- 500 gr baby squid already cleaned
- 8 Pachino cherry tomatoes
- 2 cloves of garlic
- extra virgin olive oil
- chilli (optional)
How to make pasta with squid and cherry tomatoes
The first thing to do is clean the squid detaching the head and tentacles and removing the internal cartilage and entrails. In a large pan, put 5 tablespoons of oil and a clove of garlic cut in half, let the garlic brown and pour the squid previously stripped of the inner film and cut into rings into the pan.
We let them cook until they turn pink, about 3-4 minutes.
We pour 3-4 tablespoons of white wine and let it evaporate. As soon as the wine has dried we can turn it off.
In the meantime, cook the pasta in abundant salted water and in a separate saucepan, fry another clove of garlic cut into small pieces in 5-6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil together with the tomatoes cut into 4 parts. Cook the tomatoes in the oil, once the sauce has been reduced (but without crushing the tomatoes) turn off the heat, it will only take 5 minutes of cooking. Cooking the cherry tomatoes separately will give more flavor to the dish.
Drain the pasta and pour it into the squid, finally add the tomato sauce, mix over a high heat for a few moments, add the chopped parsley and serve.
