Ingredients

For the Calamari Stew:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, cut in 1/2
  • 1 3/4 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds calamari (squid), bodies thinly sliced and tentacles whole
For the Garlic Toast:
  • 4 to 6 slices of bread
  • Olive oil, for drizzling
  • 2 to 3 whole cloves garlic

Directions

For the Calamari Stew: Warm the olive oil over medium heat in a medium pot. Add the garlic and let cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Remove the garlic. Add the tomato sauce, white wine, thyme, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Add the calamari and stir to combine. Continue to cook until the mixture comes back up to a simmer, about 2 more minutes. Serve immediately with the Garlic Toasts.

For the Garlic Toast: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Meanwhile, drizzle the bread slices with olive oil. Toast until the bread is crisp and turning golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and rub the top of the toasts with whole garlic cloves. Serve immediately with the Calamari Stew.
