  1. Step 1

    Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the onion for 6-8 mins until soft and beginning to brown. Add the garlic and anchovies and cook for 1 min more before scattering in the chilli, if using, and the oregano. Cook for 30 seconds, then tip into the slow cooker.
  2. Step 2

    Pour in the can of tomatoes, then swill out the can using 1 tbsp water and pour this into the slow cooker. Add the squid, capers and olives. Pour in the white wine and give everything a good stir. Cook on high for 3 hrs until the sauce has thickened a little (it will be soup-like). Serve in bowls with the chopped parsley scattered over and some crusty bread for dunking.
