    Wow! Can't wait to try these! I can't put the raisins in, though, or my family won't eat them (hey, at least they love calamari!) What a clever recipe!

    I love calamari, but have never made it before. But the seafood store down the street from me sells fresh squid. So I now have an excuse to try and make this now. Thanks for sharing! Excellent!

    Saved and will try very soon! I've always used squid on pasta but haven't heard anything like this before. Sounds really good! I'm taking out the raisins though. High5 flagged as unique and beautiful. Thanks Michael.

    Wonderful recipe, Michael, though I do have my reservations about the raisins! When I make this I will add raisins to half the stuffing and then see which I like better. I have to at least try it with the raisins, right?
