Calamari Pasta Arrabbiata

I fell in love with Arrabbiata Sauce while vacationing in Italy.  "Arrabbiata" means angry in Italian, possibly indicating one's reactiion to the spicy pasta sauce.  In this recipe, I use fresh tomatoes as my only source of tomatoes.  I have always found that fresh tomatoes has just the right amount of tang and sweetness to deliciously flavor any meal.  Canned tomatoes, though may be convenient, just doesn't have that perfect balance.  You may use frozen tomatoes to substitute without detracting too much from the natural tomato flavor.  Here, with Calamari and fresh Basil, a very light tasting meal is born.  My family enjoyed it!  Hope yours does too.
