    Ash Wednesday we had pasta and my vegetable tomato sauce. Friday we had fried clams and this week I made Minestrone Soup (if you think the chicken broth counts then we are going to hell, but I am confident we are not just take my word for it ) accompanied by my secret recipe Tuna Salad sandwiches.

    Need ideas for the other 6 or so Fridays left...Man cannot live on pizza alone and we save that for emergencies.
    Here is a great pasta with seafood recipe, as an Italian myself I have conquered everyones recipe.
    MOMMA MIA SEAFOOD PASTA
    Shrimp deveined (save shrimp peel)- simmer shrimp peel in a small pan with 1/2 cup water with parsley and garlic.
    Seafood can cosist of anything you like, I add:
    Calamari rings- canned clams (Roland my favorite, reserve clam water),crab, mussels and scallops.
    In a skillet simmer garlic and olice oil on low heat, than add chopped tomatoes (canned or fresh), 2 tsp salt, fresh parsley and simmer for 10 minutes . Then add 1/2 cup white wine and simmer again 10 minutes. Now add shrimp water &reserved clam water to seafood and cook for another 10 -15 minutes so seafood incorporates flavors . Add Salt to taste and simmer to desired flavor. An added option: Before serving add 1/2 cup heavy cream and simmer another 10 minutes until thickened add parsley atop. The best pasta to serve with this is Spaghetti or linguine.
    I hope you enjoy the recipe, it's an old family tradition. As my grandma use to say "Use your tastebuds and add a little love", meaning don't be afraid to try something new. I have made this recipe 1,000 x's and I always use the basic step. I did not add the quantity of seafood this is for you to distinguish. Remember the sauce needs to be watery and flavorful , reason why is because when you add sauce to pasta it will suck up juices.
    After pasta is cooked drain pasta and add 1/2 cup sauce, mix plate and add more sauce with seafood atop.
    Bon appetite, If you need any more advice on this pasta dish please p.m me.
    Capturing the passion and love of your special day in paradise.

    Another recipe from online. This is modified as well, substituting bleu cheese for the originally called for goat cheese. Delicious!
