Calamari is almost always sold cleaned, which greatly reduces your prep time. It’s also frequently sold frozen, so look for it in the freezer aisle.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper and garlic and cook for 3 minutes, until soft. Add the calamari and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown, stirring frequently.
  • Add the tomato sauce and red pepper flakes and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, until the calamari is tender. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper before serving.
