Ingredients

For the Calamari Stew:

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves garlic, cut in 1/2

1 3/4 cups tomato sauce

1 cup white wine

1 teaspoon fresh chopped thyme leaves

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 pounds calamari (squid), bodies thinly sliced and tentacles whole

For the Garlic Toast:

4 to 6 slices of bread

Olive oil, for drizzling

2 to 3 whole cloves garlic

Directions

  1. For the Calamari Stew: Warm the olive oil over medium heat in a medium pot. Add the garlic and let cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Remove the garlic. Add the tomato sauce, white wine, thyme, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Add the calamari and stir to combine. Continue to cook until the mixture comes back up to a simmer, about 2 more minutes. Serve immediately with the Garlic Toasts. 
  2. For the Garlic Toast: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
  3. Meanwhile, drizzle the bread slices with olive oil. Toast until the bread is crisp and turning golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and rub the top of the toasts with whole garlic cloves. Serve immediately with the Calamari Stew.
