Frutti Di Mare for #SundaySupper

Claire of Sprinkles and Sprouts invited us all to join her this week to share our Best Sunday Supper Seafood recipes.

So I decided to share with you one of my favorite meals.  How can you improve on a mixture of mussels, clams, calamari, and shrimp?   Toss them with pasta!  This delicious dish, translated to Fruits of the Sea, is elegant enough to serve to guests, comforting enough to serve to family and quick enough to serve during the week.

To make life even easier, the last time I was at my fishmonger I found this package of seafood mix in the freezer department.  It was only $3.99.  That means I made this dish for about $5 and it was ready in the time it takes to boil the pasta.  I order this in restaurants all the time normally at a price tag of around $20.

This package was the perfect size for 1 large serving or two small servings.  Perfect if you are cooking for just one or two as I so often find myself doing these days.  I got to eat this entire thing because my husband is not a seafood fan.  When I made this for my dinner it was easy to make extra pasta and a quick alfredo sauce for him.

Frutti Di Mare

2-4 oz. fettuccine noodles, cooked per package directions
1 pkg. frozen seafood mix or assorted seafood of your choosing
1 T. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1/2 c. dry white wine
pinch of crushed red pepper

Heat olive oil and garlic together in a large skillet over med high heat. Add the frozen seafood mix and white wine.  Cook and stir for 5 or 6 minutes, until shellfish open and seafood is heated through and liquid is slightly reduced.  Add the pasta to the pan and toss until warmed through.  Plate and serve.
