This traditional dish is made with beef (or in some cases with lamb or chicken). Now that summer is here we’ve decided to make it a with squid. It is absolutely juicy and delicious!
Serves: 6-8 Prep. time: 15′ Cooks in: 55′ Ready in: 1:10′
1 kg large squids, cleaned, chopped in large pieces
500 g orzo
1 large onion, grated
1 kg ripe tomatoes, grated
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat oven at 180oC/fan. In large pan heat oil and cook onion with squid for 5 minutes. Transfer on a large deep baking pan or Dutch oven.
Dissolve tomato paste in a glass of water and transfer in the pan with grated tomatoes, another glass of hot water, season with salt and pepper and bake for 30 minutes.
Stir orzo in the pan and bake for another 20 minutes until pasta absorbs all water, but is moist and tender. Let stand for 5 minutes and then serve immediately.
