There are many pasta recipes with seafood in it. The truth is, it is one of my favourite ways to cook seafood. I like how it can be the whole meal. I just have to add some bread and my meal is complete. This is why I have tried and cooked a lot of pasta recipes in the past.

Favourite seafood pasta recipes

Of all the recipes that I have tried in the past, these are the ones that I have always come back to.

Seafood pasta

I am not really sure the exact name of this but this is the fastest of the pasta recipes with seafood that I have prepared in the past. When I come home very hungry, this is my go-to recipe. I start by chopping some garlic, onions, tomatoes, and herbs like parsley. Then I put some olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the onions and garlic first. I add some paprika, tomatoes, and chicken stock. Once everything has come to a boil, I turn the heat down and let it simmer. I stir in some raw pasta that I have broken down. This cooks for 7 minutes – to soften the pasta. I keep on stirring so the pasta will not clump together. I then stir in any seafood that I have. It could be shrimps, fish, mussels, etc. Whatever I have. I let it cook from 3 to 5 minutes – depending on the seafood I added. I then use salt and pepper to season it. This dish is usually served with parsley and some lemon slices. In 20 minutes, my dish is ready to be eaten.

Italian Seafood Pasta with Mussels & Calamari

I love this dish. It feels like I am eating it along the seaside in Italy. I start by slicing some calamari and covering mussels with cold water. I also chop some garlic, shallots, and parsley. To start making it, I bring some water to a boil (in a saucepan). I add some salt and once it boils, I add enough pasta and let it cook until it is al dente. In a pan, I put some cooking oil and saute garlic, shallots, capers, and anchovy paste. Some diced tomatoes and white wine are added next. I add the mussels next and let it cook for 5 minutes. The calamari comes in next. This takes around 3 to 4 minutes to completely cook. Once the squid is cooked, I add the cooked pasta and squeeze in some lemon juice. I season with salt and pepper and garnish with parsley after plating. I usually eat this with some bread and white wine.

I hope you like my two favourite pasta recipes with seafood. There are a lot of versions like those with white sauce. However, those with tomatoes are my favourite.
