How lucky we are to have connection with the world outside thanks to internet and social media. Due to a general technical problem we are disconnected for a few days.One of the reasons to cook on a gas stove is that, even if there’s a problem with electricity, cooking is still possible😉.Nduja piccante is a lovely ingredient which I will use in a stew with frozen calamari.Chop and fry 4 garlic cloves and 1 red onion in a drizzle of olive oil. Add 1 large table spoon of nduja( which I store in the freezer, as I do with curry paste). Stir and fry. Add 1 large chopped bell pepper and 1 table spoon of dried basil. Stir and fry. Add 400 grams of frozen calamari. Stir and fry. Add 1 can of cherry tomatoes and 1 can of water. Allow to simmer for 10 mins. Add 150 grams of pasta, fregola in our case. Allow to simmer for a few minutes. Here I stopped and continued the following day. Reheat the pan. Allow to simmer ( uncover the pan) until pasta is al dente and sauce is thickening. Taste, add pepper and salt.Serve with fresh basil. Enjoy a weekend in complete lockdown.
