Squid is a perfect ingredient for pasta sauces as it cooks so quickly – in fact, it must never be cooked for more than a few minutes or it will become rubbery. However, if cooked very briefly, it is tender and delicious. People are sometimes alarmed at the idea of preparing squid but once you have learned how it is not difficult and I even find it quite fun.
