Serves 3-4

Olive oil
2 cloves: chopped: Garlic
2: Shallots
1: deseeded: chopped: Chilli
Prawns, Squid, Mussels
75ml: White wine
250g: Chopped tomatoes
75ml: Fish stock
Juice of a lemon


1: halved: Ciabatta
1 clove: Garlic

For the sauce:
1. Fry garlic and shallots in olive oil.
2. Add chopped tomatoes and cook until thick.
3. Add chilli, prawns, squid and mussels. Stir for 1 minute.
4. Add white wine and fish stock. Cover the pan and cook for 3 minutes, until mussels have opened.
5. Discard unopened mussels.

For the spaghetti:
1. Cook some spaghetti in boiling water until al dente.

To finish:
1. Stir the spaghetti into the sauce and cook for another minute.
2. Add salt & pepper, sugar, lemon juice, parsely and tomato puree to taste.

For the garlic bread:
1. Drizzle olive oil on ciabatta and put in oven.
2. When done, rub a clove of garlic over the bread.

This is a great alternative to boring old spaghetti bolognese.

Make sure you leave a good hour or so for preparation. The actual cooking takes very little time. For the fish stock I just boiled the shells that were removed from the prawns. You can just use boiling water by itself if you haven’t got any stock. Don’t forget to devein the prawns if you bought fresh ones!

    I never thought I’d see the day when Philip wouldn’t scowl at the very thought of pasta.

    While it is true that I now love pasta (and pesto, oh my god pesto!). The fact remains that rice > pasta > potatoes.
