Stuffed Calamari

I’ve made this dish many times.  It’s important to cook the stuffed calamari until tender.  This recipe calls for a cheese stuffing, although there are many different stuffing options.  Feel free to experiment based upon your preference.

 

INGREDIENTS:

10 Large Squid, Cleaned (Tentacles Removed)

1 lb. Ricotta Cheese, Whole Milk

1 Egg

½ Cup Parmesan Cheese, Grated

1 Tbsp. Parsley, Chopped

½ Tsp. Salt

½ Tsp. Pepper

Flour

¾ Cup Olive Oil

2 Cups Marinara Sauce (see recipe)
 

DIRECTIONS:

In a large bowl, combine the ricotta, egg, parmesan cheese, parsley, salt and pepper.  Stuff the cheese mixture into each of the squid bodies and seal the opening with a toothpick.  Dredge the squid in the flour.  Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a sauté pan until simmering.  Saute the squid in the olive oil until lightly brown on all sides, approx. 8 minutes.  Remove the squid from the sauté pan and place in a roasting pan.  Pour the marinara sauce over the squid, cover the pan, and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for approx. 1 hour, until fork tender.  Remove the toothpicks.  Transfer to a platter and serve.
