Frutti Di Mare (Fruit of the Sea)

One of my favorite ways to enjoy pasta is with seafood.

There is nothing quite like fresh scallops, shrimp, calamari, mussels,  and clams to make your pasta sing.

It may not always be possible to get fresh seafood, so frozen, is second best. But it is still very tasty.
I was able to watch both of my Italian grandmother's make their sauce (gravy) from scratch. They would both literally spend hours making sure everything tasted just right. Hours. When you cooked for your family you did not cut any corners. You took your time.

While that is still my preferred method, sometimes you just don't have hours to spare to make your sauce. So make I make it and try to make a double batch, so the goodness of the flavors will be cooked in the second time around.
In the following video, I show a fairly quick method of making seafood pasta: Frutti Di Mare.

My advice is to use the best possible pasta. Don't cut corners. The extra expense is certainly worth it.
Here are the ingredients:
  •      fettuccine pasta
  •       shell fish (This can be fresh or frozen
  •       Garlic
  •     Tomato Sauce and spices
