Calamarata with baby octopus with tomato sauce

Pasta sauce and black olives moscardini. Delicious pasta dish: I used Calamarata, but I would also recommend the paccheri. The recipe for baby octopus sauce is a classic Southern Italy, but if you do not find the octopus you can prepare the same way the little octopus, they are tender and tasty. The Octopus are ' drowned’ in a tomato sauce, raisin wine and olives and take a sweet taste but decided, fragrant. If you don't have the wine you can use a white wine, the result will be slightly less aromatic but still great. The pasta with octopus sauce is one of my wild dishes in summer: everybody likes it! On the subject of pasta with fish sauce, I suggest you also try the pasta with squid and peas, the spaghetti with octopus in red sauce or in white, with pistachios and lemon. Have a good day!
