"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Calamari Milazzese
Calamari Milazzese

2 lbs medium-sized squid
1 lb ripe tomatoes
4 anchovy filets packed in oil
4 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon crushed red chili
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup parsley
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 

Begin cleaning the squid by pulling the tentacles and attached head away from the body.
Remove the mouth from the head, hidden in the center of the base of the tentacles.
Cut away the head just above the tentacles and below the eyes.
Discard the mouth and head.
Next, hold the body of the squid under cold running water, peel the outer skin, then squeeze out the insides and remove the thin cartilage by pulling gently from its tip.
Thoroughly rinse the inside of the hood. 

Cook the squid whole or, if preferred, cut squid into large square pieces, leaving the tentacles intact.

Blanche the tomatoes in boiling water and peel them.
Slice the tomatoes in half, then squeeze out the seeds and coarsely chop.
Finely chop the parsley.
Slice the garlic cloves in half.

Heat the olive oil along with the garlic in a large sauté pan over moderate flame, allow the garlic to lightly toast around the edges then add the cut up or whole squid and tentacles.
Cook the squid for a several minutes until lightly golden.
Stir in the chili and parsley, then add the white wine and simmer until the wine has almost evaporated. 

Reduce the heat to low, add the anchovies and crush them in the pan, then add the tomatoes.
Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes, stir occasionally and add a few tablespoons of water to prevent the sauce from becoming dry. 

Serve as a main course or toss the sauce with spaghetti or linguine and place the calamari on top.
