    Hot Calamari White Bean Salad

  • 3/4 cup calamari rings -- rinse well, thaw if frozen
  • 1/2 medium sweet white onion -- diced
  • 1 large Rocoto -- cut half into thin strips lengthwise. Dice the rest
  • 1 large Roma tomato -- diced
  • 5 cloves garlic -- roasted
  • 1 15 oz can mixed white beans -- rinsed
  • 1 bag leafy salad (romaine, baby lettuces,mixed Asian, etc) tear into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup Pinot Grigio, or good dry white table wine
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican oregano, dried whole -- to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme, dried -- to taste
  • 1 pinch marjoram, dried -- to taste
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper -- to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt -- to taste
  • 1 spray olive oil spray
  • 2 teaspoons grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  • Add the oregano, thyme and marjoram to a large non-stick sauté pan with cover. Toast on high heat until aromatic, lower heat to medium and add the onion, Rocoto, pepper and salt. Cook for a few minutes, stirring, coating the onions and peppers with the spices. Spray with good olive oil (or add a tsp), coating lightly. Add about 1/2 the wine, stir and simmer, covered, for about 10 minutes.

    Through the garlic unpeeled into the broiler and roast until soft and starting to turn color. (Or nuke it.) Chop the tomato and add to the pan along with the rest of the wine. Very coarsely chop the roasted garlic. Add the garlic and Calamari, boil uncovered for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the beans and heat. Consistency should be like thick chili.

    Take the salad and tear into big bite-sized pieces onto a plate. Spoon the mix evenly onto the salad. Garnish with Romano or Parmesan cheese.
