creamy seafood spinach pasta

25 Oct
it’s Sunday! (:
and Sunday normally means either a baking day
or cooking something that I love. hehe
just to end the week on a high note.
so tonight.
I decided to cook creamy seafood pasta
which I haven’t made in ages!

baby loved it! (: hehe
good to see him happy. hehe
espcially cause he is doing his assignments and studying for his papers.
this meal was to cheer him up a little! hehe

it’s really quick to cook.
easy as well,
you will get delicious pasta in 30 mins or less!

so here’s the recipe
hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did!

Creamy Seafood Spinach Pasta

Ingredients :

500g marinara mix
1 onion, finely chopped
4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
50g butter
1/2 cup (125ml)  white wine
2 cups (500ml) cream
2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard

Steps : 

1. Separate the marinara mix into the different seafood
(cause all have a slightly different cooking time)

2. Melt and heat the butter in a frying pan
and cook the onion and garlic over medium heat for 2 minutes
or until the onion is softened
(be careful not to burn the garlic, as it will turn bitter)

3. Add the wine to the pan and cook for 4 mins
or until reduced by half.
Stir in the cream, mustard and lemon juice and simmer for 5-6 mins
or until reduced by half.

4. While allowing the cream to reduce,
cook the pasta according to the instructions on the box

5. Add the seafood into the cream sauce.
First, put the prawn and cook it for 1 minute
then add the fish and cook for 2 minutes.
Finally,
add the calamari and mussels and cook for a further 1 min.
If any of the seafood is uncooked, cook for another minute or so,
but be careful not to overcook as this will result in tough flesh.

6. Add the pasta and coat each strand with the cream sauce.
Serve with salad or a glass of wine.
Anything to your liking (:

DONE!

some creamy goodness is always good in my books (:
