Shell Fish: Mussels, Clams, Shrimp (Cleaned)
Calamari, cleaned (optional)
Baby Lobster Tails (optional)
Hot Pepper Flakes
Salt & Pepper
Boil the water for your pasta. In another pot, heat some olive oil and add your onions and garlic. Allow to sautee/sweat until the onions are translucent and then deglaze with a glass of white wine. Add your hot pepper flakes and tomato sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Allow to cook for about 20 minutes or for.
When the water for the pasta comes to a rolling boil, add your pasta and cook it according to the directions. For the last 5 minutes while the pasta cooks, you can add all your fish to the sauce. Mussels and clams will open once they are done (in about 5 minutes), the shrimp might take a mnute more, and the baby lobster tails may need 7 minutes or more depending on the size/thickness. But, all the fish should be fully cooked within 10 minutes. Drain pasta well, put on a plate, and spoon marechiara sauce over the top giving equal portions of shrimp, mussels and clams (lobster) to each plate.
