  4. Add the garlic, tomatoes, and chooped pepper, season with salt and pepper to taste and cook for a few minutes longer.
  5. Add the cooking liquid from the octopus and bring it to a boil.
  6. Add rice (preferably a short-grain) and bring back to a boil, then turn the heat very low and put the lid on the saucepan.
  7. After 15 minutes, stir to ensure the rice is not sticking to the bottom.
  8. After 5 minutes, taste the rice to make sure it is done.
