In Italy, pasta paired with mild-flavored fish is not usually topped with cheese, but breadcrumbs often take its place. Here, the crisp texture and toasty flavor of the crumbs complement the soft, sweet roasted tomatoes without overwhelming the calamari.
For tasty coarse breadcrumbs, whir an English muffin in a food processor

Really yummy pasta with tomatoes and toasted breadcrumbs.
I made 1/2 the pasta with full everything else, and it was delicious. You could get away with less calamari, but I think the tomatoes and garlic would get lost with that much pasta. Added about 1/4 C pasta water to make it more saucy. The cooking method for the calamari and tomatoes is fantastic! Calamari cooked perfectly. Next time I would be sure my breadcrumbs were REALLY crisp, or just put them on top instead of mixing them in.
I substituted shrimp and scallops for the squid due to the dinner guests but it was well received and tasty.Seemed to need a sauce as it was dry at first tasting but everyone took second helpings
