Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup peeled garlic cloves
  • 1 pound angel hair pasta
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound calamari, cleaned
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley leaves
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wrap garlic cloves in foil and roast 15 minutes, until golden brown and tender. Set aside.

  • Cook angel hair according to package directions.

  • Meanwhile, coat a stove-top grill pan or griddle with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat to preheat.

  • Season both sides of calamari with salt, black pepper and oregano. Place calamari on hot pan and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, until browned.

  • In a blender, combine chicken broth and roasted garlic. Puree until blended. Transfer mixture to a saucepan and set pan over medium heat. Slice calamari into rings and add to simmering broth. Dissolve cornstarch in 1 tablespoon water and add to pan. Simmer 2 minutes, until sauce thickens. Drain pasta and transfer to a serving platter. Top with calamari and sauce. Sprinkle parsley over top just before serving.
