Craving Calamari - Part 2

You know I love it. And now I’m back with another very simple yet delicious way to prepare calamari.

Calamari for Two

2 large carrot

2 large celery sticks

2 small white onions

1 pound (or a bit more) of calamari (preferably the body chopped up instead of rings)

peperoncino (red pepper flakes) to taste

salt to taste

olive oil

1/2 cup of white wine

Chop up the vegetables ingredients (also peel the carrot first). Heat up at medium-high a large sauce pan with olive oil, peperoncino (or even a good spicy salsa) and a little salt (about 1 minute). Add all the vegetables and stir , so that get well coated (about 2-3 minutes). Add the calamari pieces and stir also coated them (about 2-3 minutes). Then add the white wine and stir a bit more.

Turn down the heat to medium-low (more than a simmering pace) and cover for about 5 minutes, checking and stirring every once in a while.

The whole process should not take more than 10 minutes. And you have is:

Can it get any easier than this?!

Buon Appetito!
