Garlic Spaghetti with Calamari and HerbsSeafood and spaghetti goes so well with each other. Today's delicious spaghetti is loaded with fresh calamari and flavorful herbs. Instead of spaghetti, you can also use any flat pasta type to make a slightly different version. Calamari is very tender and cooks fairly quickly. Do not over fry it else it will spoil the texture of the recipe. If you prefer a slightly spicy version, do not hesitate to use some chili flakes. You can also use egg noodles instead of classic spaghetti as they blend quite well with seafood. I've also used generous amount of garlic in this recipe which induces a unique flavor within the pasta. Adding it in the mashed form is highly recommended. Let's quickly make this tasty pasta recipe.
