Squid rings with Pancetta and Small Tomatoes

This is very quick recipe, in 15 minutes you can really impress someone!

For two People
Two small squids
Half a pack of small tomatoes
One pack of Pancetta (Italian pork already cut in small cubes)
One small shallots
Olive oil, salt and pepper

Add some olive oil to a non sticking pan, turn the heat on and start chopping the shallots very finely.
Once the oil is hot, add the shallots and fry until soft and golden (it will take just few minutes).
Chop the tomatoes, add and stir for 3-4 minutes, then add the pancetta cubes until they are cooked (they should take about 5 minutes).
In the meantime, cut the squid into rings, add and cook for 3-4 minutes (if you cook them for too long, they will become rubbery and inedible).
Serve immediately.

If you want, you can add noodles. One nest per person is enough, cook them according to the instructions, when the squid is ready, plate, return the pan to the heat,  and stir briefly the noodles. Plate them with the squid.

Buon appetito!!
