Ingredients
  • 1 pound linguine
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound calamari, sliced into rings
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans pasta sauce with roasted garlic (recommended: Hunt's)
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Chopped fresh basil leaves, optional
Directions

Cook linguine according to package directions.

Heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet and a small saucepot. To both, add garlic and cook 1 minute. Add calamari to the skillet and cook 2 minutes. Then to both, add pasta sauce and crushed red pepper flakes and bring to a simmer. Simmer 3 to 5 minutes, until calamari is tender. Reserve tomato sauce in the saucepot for another meal.

Transfer linguine to a serving platter. Spoon all of the calamari and tomato sauce over linguine. Garnish with basil, if desired.
