Seafood Pasta

Mine is not a food blog but I thought that I might share this one with you.

Tonight I was allowed into the kitchen and prepared a seafood pasta…

Ingredients..

Spaghetti for 2
packet of cooked mussels from ALDI – £1.79
Ten scallops from ALDI – about £1.50
Frozen Seafood selection from ALDI – about .70
Frozen Clams from ALDI – about £1.00
Half a large onion
Little bit of garlic

Homemade Focaccia Bread – about .25p

Sweat the onions and the garlic
Prepare the spaghetti
Add the seafood to the onions
Add the spaghetti
Total cooking time – about 10 minutes

Serve immediately with a slice of lemon and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

And a bottle of Primitivo from ALDI – £4.95

Delicious, If I close my eyes I am in Puglia.

  1. I hit “like” out of respect for you liking the food . . . me? Anything other (or more) than lightly buttered and salted, and pasta is ruined.

  2. You’ve made me hungry now. I bought my Italian relative (by marriage) a bread maker for Christmas and I now get regular supplies of Focaccia and Ciabatta and I always have Primitivo in stock (plus Nero d’Avolo) so I’m all set!

  4. It looks delicious. I was wondering about the amount of onion in the recipe, which is actually an unusual ingredient, as we , Italians, use mostly garlic with seafood pasta. Buon appetito!

  9. You got Peggy’s mouth watering, Andrew. She’s an anything seafood kind of girl. Mussels aren’t a favorite of mine and I prefer clams be cut up and added to chowder, or possibly smoked. Hats off to your culinary adventure, however! –Curt

  12. Were your pots, pans and glasses from the centre aisle, Aldi-man? If I didn’t know better I would have thought this post was sponsored by a German supermarket company! To be serious though – it looks good.

  13. This looks very good. Too bad hubby is allergic to seafood. But I can always make him something else. Thanks!

  14. I like the simplicity, but I don’t like mussels, and, if I’m truthful, I don’t like seafood 😦 Just fish! And not with pasta 🙂 🙂

  16. Looks good. I am a seafood lover. And the Primitivo reminds me of my time in Puglia. I always feel compelled to drink an Italian red whenever I have Italian food, no matter what it is.

  17. This seems at odds with. your just-published post about the joys of the fresh fish market! Looks good though, and I would make it if ‘im indoors would eat mussels. Or clams. Or scallops.

  18. Pasta marinara is lovely, but my favourite fish dish is a paella 🥘 and a good NZ Sav Blanc.
