.: I love you more than rock’n’roll

English language have much more words than italian, but… when it comes to food you can find weird things: I’m not sure there are two different words for totani and calamari… or they’re both called squid? I don’t know. Anyway… questa ricetta potete farla coi calamari o con i totani, sarà sempre mooooolto buona. You get the kind of squid you like best, results will be nice either way. And we need something good for our body and soul… so let’s go. This recipe takes some (cooking) time, but it’s very simple and anyone can do it.

evo oil – olio evo
onion – cipolla
garlic – aglio
parsley – prezzemolo
sweet paprika – paprica dolce
turmeric – curcuma
ginger – zenzero
pepper – pepe
chili pepper – peperoncino
tomato sauce – salsa di pomodoro
potatoes – patate
Deve cuocere almeno 1 ora, quindi non è una ricetta velocissima. Must cook for at least 1 hour, so it’s not a quick one.

Of course, first you need to mince onion, garlic and parsley

I especially love garlic with fish, so I put a lot of it in the pan

Also you need to have the potatoes ready and of course the rings of squid. Ora siete pronti per fare un quadro astratto in padella: the pan will be your modern art work: put the oil, the onion, the spices and the garlic (last, after the onion is a bit colored)

then put the fish in. Fate rosolare 5 minuti gli anelli nell’olio-aglio-cipolla-spezie

just 5 minutes. Then you will add the tomato sauce and the potatoes

Mix, cover the pan, let it cook for 1 hour. Mescolate, coprite e lasciate cuocere per 1 ora.

You can also make it without potatoes… Sì, potreste anche farli senza patate…

but you’ll regret it ! Ma ve ne pentireste !

Potatoes make it gorgeous…better than rock’n’roll… well, I’m not sure
