“I like calamari, but only the rings (nothing with tentacles please). I found some frozen calamari rings in the Seafood Department of my supermarket and bought them on impulse. I then had to figure out what to do with them, rather than just fry them. Here's what I came up with.”

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add red onion and saute until tender, about 5-10 minutes. Add bay leaf and garlic; cook for an additional minutes (do not let garlic burn).
  2. Add calamari and saute for 2 minutes or so, until lightly colored. Add white wine, and cook for 3-4 minutes, until liquid is reduced. Add salt, red pepper,and marjoram; stir to combine. Add marinara sauce, bring to a slow simmer, then cover and cook gently for 20-30 minutes.
