Seafood Tagliatelle

Looking for a quick and simple dinner to cook on a cold Saturday evening, I went for this simple yet delicious Seafood Tagliatelle in Creamy Sauce!

I was not joking when I said that it was simple to cook, it was super easy!

Not only was it easy to cook, it only requires a few ingredients which are very easy to prepare. All I used was a bag of frozen mixed seafood from the supermarket, dried tagliatelle, chopped flat leaf parsley and double cream.

The tagliatelle was boiled in salted water for around 9 minutes or until al dente.

While doing that, caramelise some chopped garlic in olive oil and butter on a hot pan, then add the mixed seafood to fry. Then add the double cream and some chopped parsley, season with salt and pepper then let it shimmer for 3-4 minutes.

Lastly, drain the pasta and add to the sauce. Mix them together and the pasta is ready to be served!

I like the rich creamy sauce with tasty mixed seafood of squids, small prawns and mussels. Silky tagliatelle that has absorbed all the goodness of the sauce. The chopped parsley added some depth to the flavour of the sauce -  lovely!

PS: The sauce I made was a little thick and rich, if you like a more diluted sauce, add some of the water used to cook the pasta. Also, it would  be even nicer if you have some white wine at home that you can add to the sauce!
