Spaghetti with calamari and radicchio

Photo: Quentin Jones

Calamari and squid look similar and are often presented as the same thing, which can make shopping confusing.

Ingredients

  • 300g calamari, cleaned
  • 2 heads radicchio or Treviso radicchio
  • 400g spaghetti
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 200ml dry white wine
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper

Method

Cut calamari into matchstick-sized strips. Remove and discard tough outer leaves of radicchio. Pull leaves from heart and wash thoroughly. Cut into long strips. Cook spaghetti in a large pot of salted boiling water. Drain 2-3 minutes before it is cooked. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large pan and fry calamari, radicchio and garlic on moderate heat for 4-5 minutes. Add drained spaghetti and raise heat to high. Add wine and parsley, stirring until liquid is almost evaporated and spaghetti has a glossy coating. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve (pictured).
