Squid Spaghetti Marinara


Prep time: 15 mins 
Cooking time: 20-30 mins 
Serves: 2


  • 2 large whole squid, we will clean it for you
  • 1 jar Fish in the Family Marinara Sauce*
  • 1 cup water
  • 100g dried spaghetti or linguini

To Serve: 

  • Small handful fresh parsley
  • 1 small crusty baguette


  1. Remove the thin film-like skin and fin off squid. Slice tubes into 1cm rings. Cut tentacles in quarters.
  2. Pour sauce and a cup of water in a medium saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. Add squid, stir through and braise on medium-low heat for 15-20 minutes. It should become soft and tender.
  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to packet instructions. Strain pasta and divide between two serving bowls. Top with squid marinara. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve with crusty baguette on the side, perfect for mopping up the last bits of the sauce.     

*Notes: Arrabbiata sauce, a tomato-based chilli pasta sauce, can also be used here. For a less spicy family-friendly version use a Napolitana pasta sauce.
