Calamari Steaks Parmigiano


  • 3/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 4 calamari tubes or steaks
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce
  • 4 slices provolone cheese


  • Slice the calamari tubes open so they can lay flat.
  • Rinse and pat dry; set aside.
  • Mix the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese together in a pie tin or on a plate.
  • Pour the milk into a separate dish.
  • Dip the calamari steaks in milk, then press into the bread crumb mixture to coat.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot.
  • Quickly add the steaks and cook until golden brown on each side, about 3 minutes per side.
  • They should be golden brown but be careful not to over cook or they will be tough.
  • Reduce heat to low and add garlic and then spaghetti sauce to the pan.
  • Top each steak with a slice of provolone cheese.
  • Cover with a lid just until the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes.
