BASIC TOMATO SAUCE

Directions

In a 12 to 14-inch saute pan, heat oil until just smoking. Add pine nuts, currants and chili flakes and saute until nuts are just golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add caper berries, tomato sauce and couscous and bring to a boil. Add calamari, stir to mix and simmer two to three minutes, or until calamari is just cooked and completely opaque. Season with salt and pepper, pour into a large warm bowl, sprinkle with scallions and serve with warm Panelle.

Season with salt to taste and set aside.
