  Cleaned squid 12 Ounce
  Part skim ricotta cheese 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Egg 1 , beaten
  Seasoned dried bread crumbs 3 Tablespoon
  Minced onion 2 Tablespoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Oregano leaves 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Tomato sauce 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Dry red wine 2 Teaspoon
  Grated parmesan cheese 1 Tablespoon
  Chopped fresh parsley 1 Tablespoon (For Garnish)

Remove tentacles from each squid and set aside; turn body section (mantle) inside-out, wash thoroughly to remove all grit, and return to right side.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Cut tentacles into small pieces; in small bowl combine tentacles with ricotta cheese, egg, bread crumbs, onion, and seasonings, mixing well.
Stuff each squid with an equal amount of crumb mixture and secure open end with toothpicks; transfer squid to shallow 1-quart casserole.
In small bowl combine tomato sauce and wine; pour over stuffed squid, cover casserole, and bake for 30 minutes.
Sprinkle squid with Parmesan cheese and bake, uncovered, until sauce reduces slightly and cheese is golden, 10 to 15 minutes.
