We really enjoyed this dish. I used wholemeal sphagetti which took longer to cook.

my boyfriend and i made this tonight and we didn't like it at all. there was far too much chicken stock which overpowered the other ingredients and gave it a confusing flavour with the seafood. I think next time we will take out the stock and cook the pasta seperatly, and use the previous suggestions of white wine and chilli for more flavour. A bit dissapointed with this dish :(

Cooked this for friends and it looked very impressive and tasted fab!

I added more chilli for a kick.

I made this as per the recipe with a bit of chilli for zing. I liked the fact that it was one pot, but found the taste a bit uninspiring. Pasta, tomatoes and a bit of seafood. I didn't really need a recipe for that.

We love this! It's so tasty, I also add lots of red chilli to spice it up x

I really enjoyed this recipe but I thought there was too much chicken stock. I will cook the pasta seperately next time so that the sauce will be richer. I used fresh caught trout and a few frozen prawns.

Delicious and very easy. Did find the spaghetti was still a bit crunchy so next time will cook it separately and then add to the sauce.

We both love this and have now made twice - the Spanish twist version using wine and saffron (used rose wine we were drinking at the time!). Added a chopped chilli at the start as we love our food to have a kick. Used 2 normal toms and half a punnet of baby toms instead of tinnned toms this time which still worked well. Boyfriend wanted to cook the pasta (we used linguine) separately, but convinced him to stick to recipe and it works beautifully - though we though the pasta weight was a bit stingy so increased this and also amount of liquid (wine & stock) to match. Used raw king prawns and squid from fish counter - yum!

Very quick, very easy - adding a touch of chilli made it even better.

Definitely a winner. Agree that it needed more spice and I also added the wine. I used chilli infused olive oil for a slight kick.

Quick and easy. I used prawns not the seafood mix, I also put in spinach and chorizo towards the end of cooking.

Great recipe, nice and quick and cheap ingredients too, but tastes quite special! Will try with wine and chilli next time. Becoming a regular favourite in our house!

So simple to make, ideal if you're running late and need something quick. Ingredients are also basic which is a plus.
I added extra paprika and chilli flakes... but next time I think I'll just make it without the chilli.

Quick and easy but next time i'll definitely cooked the pasta separately to avoid adding the chicken stock.... & i would also advise anyone to go by the suggestions of wine, saffron & chilli flakes... Will definitely make again!!
