MIX SEAFOOD PASTA ( Deniz urunlu makarna )

This pasta dish is so quick to make and ideal for weeknights for a feel good meal. Serves 2

  • 250-300 g pasta
  • 200 g cooked mixed sea food ( mussels, squid rings, prawns, seafood sticks )
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp grated ginger (optional )
  • 150 g fresh tomatoes, chopped
  • 75 g fresh or frozen peppers
  • 1 or 2 tsp tomato paste
  • 150 ml hot water
  • A handful of fresh dill and parsley, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Some more chopped dill for serving.

First boile the pasta in plenty of salted water until it is 'al dante' for about 7- 10 minutes. Drain, set aside and keep the pasta warm. Make the sauce by frying the onions in the oil first. Then add rest of the vegetables, stir and cook for 2 minutes or so. Add tomato paste, water, herbs, salt and pepper and cook on low heat for 15 minutes. Add more water if needed. Add the seafood at the last minute and serve immediately with the pasta. Season with salt and black pepper and sprinkle of fresh dill. Enjoy...
