“If you love calamari, you will LOVE this one! Light, flavorful and super delicious! I sub 1/2 and 1/2 for the cream and still love it as much! The original recipe was for 1/2 pound of pasta but I increase the pasta to 1 pound without increasing the other ingredients because my family doesn't like things as "saucy". If yours does, either 1/2 the pasta or double the sauce!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add crushed garlic, and cook for a few seconds until it turns golden brown. Stir in the squid, and cook until it turns white. Pour in white wine and cherry pepper slices; bring to a simmer, and cook until the wine is reduced by half, about 3 minutes.
  3. Stir cornstarch into the cream, and add to the simmering calamari. Season with red pepper flakes, basil, salt, and pepper; stir until thickened. To serve, toss pasta with sauce, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
