Instructions: In a pressure cooker, combine the octopus, 2 cups (500 ml) water, and bay leaf. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Close the pressure cooker and lock the lid. Set burner heat to high pressure. When the cooker reaches high pressure, reduce heat to low. Set timer to cook for 10 minutes.


Place the pressure cooker in the sink, not removing the lid, then run cold water over the lid until pressure goes down completely. Open the lid. Using tongs, transfer cooked octopus to a cutting board, reserving 1/2 cup (125 ml) of cooking liquid. Cut off and discard head, then chop tentacles into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces. Set aside.

Prepare Tomato Sauce: Heat a heavy medium saucepan over medium heat. Add chopped tomatoes with their juice, basil, and olive oil. Simmer, uncovered, stirring and mashing tomatoes occasionally, until thick and reduced to 3/4 cup (180 ml), for about 20-25 minutes.

Remove the saucepan from the heat, set aside, allow to cool.


Prepare Basil Purée: In a blender or food processor, combine basil, extra-virgin olive oil, butter, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Blend until smooth. Remove basil mixture from the blender and transfer to a small bowl. Set aside.

Boil salted water in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add Italian spaghetti and cook until tender. Drain, using a colander, and set aside.

In a blender, combine 6 cloves garlic and 1/3 cup (80 ml) extra-virgin olive oil. Purée until smooth. Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic mixture, then stir in octopus, shrimp, and mussels. Sauté, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 minutes. Pour in tomato sauce and reserved octopus-cooking liquid. Cook, stirring, until mussels just open wide and shrimp are cooked through, for a further 2 minutes. Season seafood mixture with salt and black pepper and stir well.

Add cooked squid to hot seafood mixture in the skillet, then stir well to combine. Add seafood mixture to hot pasta and toss well. Drizzle with prepared basil purée and serve immediately.
