2 garlic cloves

Peppers parsley on branch
Extra virgin olive oil

1. We will start by cleaning the squid, and passing them through the grinder, they should be in very small pieces, but without turning into a paste. Next, we will crush the onion, a clove of garlic and parsley. We will reserve everything in a bowl with the crushed squid.
2. In a plate we add milk, the slice of crumbled bread, a little salt, pepper, nutmeg, paprika and an egg. We mix everything until we get a compact and easily manageable dough.
3. We form the meatballs with the dough and coat them in flour. Fry them in very hot oil for five minutes. Once they are fried, we remove them and reserve them on absorbent paper.
4. To prepare the sauce for the meatballs, in the same casserole where we have fried them, we will remove all the oil, leaving only a pinch and we will fry a chopped onion, a clove of garlic and chopped parsley. Before the onion has browned, add the tomato, previously peeled and cut into pieces. Let it cook for five minutes and add a glass and a half of cold water and let it boil.
5. Remove the casserole from the heat and pass the vegetables through the blender. And we add it back to the casserole, add the meatballs, salt to taste and cook over very low heat for approximately 10 minutes.
6. Meanwhile, we boil the peas and fry the potatoes. When the 10 minutes have passed, we add the potatoes and peas to the casserole and let it boil all together for five minutes. Turn off and let rest for about 10 minutes before serving.
