Marinara Seafood Pasta Sauce (White)
2 tbsp pure olive oil 25 mL
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup dry white wine 125 mL
1 tsp salt 5 mL
1/4 tsp pepper 1 mL
1 can (5 oz/142 g) baby clams, drained, reserving liquid
12 mussels – cleaned
small calamari tubes – 5 oz
16 medium shrimps cleaned
small scallops – 20 pieces
1 lb spaghettini 450 g (choice)
1• In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and onion; cook 3 minutes or until softened.
2• Add wine, salt, pepper and 1/3 cup (75 mL) of reserved clam juice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes. Add shrimps, scallops, calamari, baby clams (drained) and cook for 3 minutes. Finally add the mussels until colour change and opened. Discard unopened mussels (the reason you should discard unopened mussels while cooking is because they are not fresh).
3• Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook pasta 6 minutes, or until tender but firm. Drain pasta. Toss with sauce and parsley, and serve immediately gently decorating the pasta plate with the mussels.
