My non-Italian friends often question the fact that I am Italian because I rarely eat pasta. I prefer eating more various food tbh and, if I want to cook high quantities of carbs, I do prefer cheating with risotto. Yet, sometimes a nice “piatto di pasta”, like these delicious Linguine ai Frutti di Mare (linguine with seafood), is what everyone needs. Me included.
Ingredients (for 2 people)
160 gr linguine
200 gr frutti di mare (mixed-seafood)
1 garlic glove
100 gr cocktail tomatoes
salt & parsley to taste
In a big pot, heat the water for the linguine (and please, add the salt only after the water starts boiling🙏😉). Cook the linguine for about 10/11 minutes (or as long as indicated in the package).
In the meantime, in a pan roast the chopped garlic glove with some olive oil, while paying attention to not burn the garlic. Then, add the seafood and cook for about 10 minutes. Next, add the chopped cocktail tomatoes and cook until they release a bit of their juice and turn soft.
When ready, put the linguine in the pan with the seafood, add some fresh parsley and some olive oil if needed. Stir well for a couple of minutes. Serve these delicious linguine ai frutti di mare.
