  1. Mince the garlic and cut the onion into rings. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is translucent.
  2. Add the canned tomatoes. Fill the empty can with water and add it to the pan. Simmer for a few minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the fresh tomatoes into cubes. Slice the squid into rings. Add the squid and fresh tomatoes to the tomato sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until the squid is cooked. Season with salt and pepper.

Pascale's tip!

If you like rosemary, you can cook it in the oil with the garlic from the beginning. This will produce a more pronounced rosemary flavor.
