 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       sm           Octopus (about 3 1/4 pounds)
      1/2   c            Olive oil
    1                    Pinch Rosemary
    1                    Bay leaf
    1                    Pinch Oregano
    1       t            Cumin seeds
                         Chopped parsley
    1                    Green chili pepper chopped
      1/2   lb           Tomatoes -- peeled and cut
    3                    Cloves garlic chopped
                         Salt and pepper
    1       lb           Spaghetti
 
   The octopus must be very carefully washed and dried,
   and the mouth removed. Cover the bottom of a saucepan
   with oil; add the rosemary, bay leaf oregano, cumin
   seeds, parley, chili pepper, tomatoes and chopped
   garlic. Place the octopus on top of this mixture and
   season with salt and pepper. Cover the pot very
   tightly and simmer for about 45 minutes. Cook the
   spaghetti in plenty of boiling salted water until it
   is 'al dente' (firm to the bite). Drain and turn onto
   a warm serving dish. Mix the octopus sauce into the
   spaghetti. Serve piping hot. NOTE: I used cleaned
   fresh squid from the fish counter...easier and cheaper!
