Sea Food Pasta (Mario Batali Inspired)

Just saw a Mario Batali on Food Network. Make a dish called Spigola alla Livornese, the dish is simple. Here is my take on the style:

Ingredients:
Pasta, any regular pasta will do, for those that are health conscious they can get ‘organic’ whole wheat pasta. Onion, garlic, wine, olives, parsley,¬†zucchini, calamari, tomato and tomato paste goat cheese and EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)

Instructions:
Prepare the pasta like you would with any other pasta. Best way is to follow the instructions on the bag / box. Heat up the pan and add in a table spoon of EVOO, add in the 2 table spoon of onions and a tea spoon of garlic let is cook for a while until golden brown. Then add in the diced zucchini and let it cook for about 2 mins on high heat.

Then I added in wine, about a 1/2 a cup worth. Let it cook for a bit and then add in the tomato paste you can get this canned or use pasta sauce if you do not have any canned ones. Let this cook for about a minute and then add in the calamari and olives. Give the calamari about a minute and a half to cook. And towards the end add in the diced tomatoes and chopped parsley to finish.

Plate the pasta and drizzle a bit of EVVO on it. Place the mixture on top of the pasta and drizzle with a little goat cheese on top.

Have fun eating!
