Octopus with Macaroni / Oktapodi me Macaronaki

All kinds of seafood are enjoyed during the season of Lent and many creative recipes exist to spruce things up a bit. This is one of them.



2 lbs. octopus cleaned and cut into medium pieces. 1 1/2 cups olive oil
1 bay leaf 1 chopped onion
2 cups chopped tomatoes pepper
1 cup white wine 1 package elbow macaroni

In a large saucepan, add one cup of water, the bay leaf and the octopus. Cover it and cook for about 20 minutes. Remove the cover and let the water evaporate. Add the oil and onion and saut. Add the wine, tomatoes and the pepper. Bring it to a boil. It will take some time before the octopus becomes tender so add water accordingly and stir occasionally. When the octopus has softened, add the macaroni and let it cook in the sauce over medium heat. Again, add water if needed.

Susies Note: Because octopus is already salty, taste it before you add salt.
