spaggeti squid

Ingredients :

  • 1 pack of Spaghetti
  • 500 gr of calamari (squid), cleaned and chopped
  • 1/4 of cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 400 gr of fresh tomatoes, ground
  • 1/2  tsp of red pepper, finely chopped
  • Himalayan salt
  • black pepper, freshly ground
  • oregano
  • 3 tbsp of fresh parsley chopped


  1. Heat  a large pot with water and bring to a boil.  Add 1 tbsp of Himalayan salt. Cook the spaghetti al dente, for about 7 minutes (or according to your taste).
  2. Heat the olive oil into a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped garlic and red pepper and season with the freshly ground pepper.
  3. Sauté for about two minutes, or until the garlic is fragrant and barely golden.
  4. Add the ground  fresh tomatoes, calamari, oregano and salt and simmer for about  3 minutes, just long enough for it to turn opaque.

    Note:  Fresh tomatoes, when used in sauces, is better to be cooked for less than 4 minutes. If you’re using canned tomatoes then add the tomatoes and oregano first, simmer gently for about 15-20 minutes, then add the calamari and cook for another three minutes.

  5. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary and stir in the parsley.
  6. By this time,  your spaghetti will be ready too. Drain spaghetti in a colander and then add it into the skillet. Mix to combine.
  7. Remove from the heat and serve immediately or cover to keep warm for a while.
