I had these little baby squids didn't want to do the usual flour and deep fried ,therefore I knew of a red sauce, and excited to try went for it, never realizing i had no pasta! but only one box of jumbo shells.Well i decided to break apart each shell into 3 part and cooked it directly in the sauce and the rest is history .Give it a try its really good.
