Claudia I would normally like to keep my fried calamari far away from my pasta (although I do make pasta with calamari sauce), but your photo makes this look so good that I think I will try it!

I think we need to eat more fish. Part of my problem with fish is not having a good affordable source.

Claudia- I love the way your fried calamari turned out, love the tentacles, especially...so crunchy and yummy.
The only other thing, I do not serve it with pasta when its fried...just have the Marinara sauce for dipping, because cannot have just a few...got to make a huge batch!
Yumm!!!

I am loving this - the calamari is hard to get here so mostly dream. Love it over angel hair and the photo is beautiful, Claudia.
