Recipes from Le Marche
This Marche recipe is for four people but the garlic is optional and is not always included, basically include it only if you like garlic otherwise you can easily leave it out. Personally I love garlic so when I make this plenty of garlic is included. The more garlic you use the more parsley you should add...for the sake of friends and family.
Grated pecorino cheese to taste
4 tablespoons of a good quality olive oil
A pinch of salt to taste
About a 1/4 of a small glove of garlic
small bunch of parsley
16 gr. of breadcrumbs
2 egg yolks
1) Prepare the stuffing. Do this by dicing the garlic, the parsley and the tentacles of the calamari.
Fry the bread crumbs in oil and add in the tentacles, garlic and
parsley. Fry all together for a few minutes and then take it off the
heat. You can also add a little white wine while cooking which I always do.
3) Add in the egg yolks, salt and pepper and grated pecorino.
Fill the calamari with the mixture and close them with toothpicks.
Don't overfill them as otherwise when you cook them the ingredients will
expand and burst the calamari.
5) Grease the calamari well with
olive oil and grill on a hot grill, turning often and until a golden brown. Make sure you don't overcook the calamari otherwise they tend to become very rubbery.

Balconies, flower boxes, the inevitable washing on lines, wall plants, pots; and intricate stone. Another garden village I wish I lived in. One does get wistful in Montemerano.
