28 fluid ounces water
1/2 cup red wine
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon white sugar
crushed red pepper to taste
1 (16 ounce) package uncooked linguine pasta
3 pounds squid, cleaned and sliced into rings
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and cook until lightly brown. Stir in tomato puree, water, red wine, salt, sugar and crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add linguine and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
