squiddy pasta

leave a comment »

While boiling water for 1/2 package whole wheat spaghetti, chop and saute one yellow onion, one red bell pepper, a few leaves of lacinato kale, and a few cloves garlic until the onion/pepper are starting to brown and the kale is soft. Add lemon zest, red pepper flakes, salt, and chopped fresh oregano.  Rinse 1/2 lb of small squid tentacles and add them to the pan. Cook, stirring, till the squid tentacles turn white and curl up. Add a handful of chopped fresh Italian parsley, the juice of the zested lemon, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Drain the spaghetti and toss with the sauce, adding a splash of pasta water if it seems too dry. Eat while watching Clerks on Netflix.
