About this recipe: Squid and courgette is a typical pairing in Italian cuisine. Try this pasta dish and you'll see why! If you don't have fresh orecchiette, replace with dry orecchiette or any other kind of short type of dry pasta, such as maccheroni, penne or fusilli.
A few tips to perfectly cook pasta, as Italians would do: use a large amount of water, around 1L per 100g of pasta; add the pasta only when the water is boiling, stir, then bring back to the boil, stirring from time to time. Cook 1 minute less than the time suggested on the packet; drain and reserve some of the cooking water. Add the pasta to the sauce and finish cooking, adding some of the reserved water as needed. Serve straightaway! Also, never rinse pasta, you'll lose the starch needed to keep it moist.
