This calamari stew with olives and capers is prepared in a Mediterranean style and is a great accompaniment to spaghetti or your
favorite kind of pasta. The calamari are sauted and
then together with the other savory ingredients gently cooked in tomatoes which results in a tasty and complex mouth watering gravy. I used whole squids fresh from the fish market, which needed a little more time to be washed and cleaned and be separated into the tubes and tentacles. I gave the heads to my dog Oyster who couldn't get enough of them. If you want to avoid the cleaning and chopping you can use commercially available cleaned and pre packed calamari rings as well.
