put them in a nonstick skillet with the tomato sauce (marinara type as per previously mentioned recipe) and tomato paste,
parsley, chives, bay leaf and the white wine. Add salt and start cooking everything with that skillet over moderate heat and partially covered.

While preparing the sauce, cook the pasta al dente, following the signs of the times on the package.
Drain well and pour into pan with sauce. Far flavor ingredients for a couple of minutes.
Turn off the stove, pour the oil, mix well and serve.

Addtional tips - you can also use frozen squid, making sure it is well thawed in advance and at room temperature.  This is rich enough at it is for a main course dish, but if you wish to complete the meal you can add a Season salad or cooked vegetables and of course fresh fruit.
Our suggestion for a good wine to accompany this dish: Vernaccia di Oristano (white wine of Sardinia), if available.
