Spaghetti Marinara

Spaghetti Marinara is my favourite spaghetti dish mainly because its spicy and its a mix of seafood!!  YUMM!!  I usually eat this at a Fasta Pasta restaurant but since Woolies had a special on their seafood marinara I thought why not make this instead of a traditional beef spaghetti?

Seafood Marina from Woolworths

This is a very simple and yet delicious dish to make.

All you need is:

  • 1 tbs of oil.
  • 2 onions sliced finely
  • clove of garlic sliced finely
  • 1 packet of fettucini 
  • 1 cup of red wine (I used shiraz)
  • spaghetti sauce of your choice (I used a standard size jar of leggos sauce with chill)
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes (I used ones with basil and garlic in it)
  • chopped chilli (use as much as you want)
  • Italian herbs (i just used basil) 
  • 700 grams of seafood marinara (you can get this from Woolworths, in frozen aisles of supermarkets or at seafood markets)
  • Parmesan cheese

  • In a medium sized pan, heat the oil and add the onion and garlic.  Cook til tender/softened.
  • Next add in the can of tomato, red wine and herbs and simmer.  Stir.  Cook for about 15 minutes til reduced or til it gets a bit saucier.
  • Next cook the fettucini pasta as instructed on the packet.  Drain.  And put equal small portions on plates.
  • Then back to the sauce base, add the seafood marinara mix and cover on medium heat.  Cook for 4 minutes.  Stir.   Please do not over cook because the seafood will go all tough and rubbery.  
  • Then lastly, ladle the seafood marinara sauce over the plates and serve with Parmesan cheese on top!
