After about an hour and a half of the simmering add the calamari, during this time you can make the linguine, the Calamari will simmer in the pot for 30 minutes, so time the pasta accordingly. Drain pasta and serve the Calamari Sauce over it adding a sprig of parsley.  This is a great meal for the traditional seafood Christmas Eve the Italians observe.
