  • Summary

    The key to preparing calamari is to either cook it really fast or really slow; anything in between will leave you with a chewy texture. Serve this in a big bowl as part of an antipasti spread or as individual servings. From the book "Lucinda's Rustic Italian Kitchen," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Wiley).

    • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
    • 2 sprigs fresh oregano, or 1/2 teaspoon dried
