I really loved this recipe as did my boyfriend and sister. Will def make this again!

As per the suggestions I added white wine, saffron and chilli flakes which made it really tasty. Used canned plum tomatoes, more seafood and extra garlic clove. Also fried some chopped green and red pepper.

Must confess I made the pasta separately as I did not want to take a chance (so no chicken stock), but will try one pot next time!

really great storecupboard dish - one point though, I used a 340g pack of frozen seafood mix (the only size I could find), didn't change any other measures (except to add a bit of wine), and my son and husband ate all of it with no problem! So I think 240g for four people would be a bit stingy. In fact, the next time I cooked it I added about 50g raw prawns, and it still wasn't too much for them. Maybe they're just greedy!, but I do think if you were cooking it for a dinner party for four there wouldn't be enough seafood. apart from that, fantastic. Added chilli flakes as suggested and wine (as mentioned), and it really tasted super (or so they tell me - I didn't get any!! - but it's not my thing).

Would love to make this but unsure how much chicken stock is needed. Help please!

This came out really well and impressed our dinner guests. The pasta being cooked in the same pot was great as it saves on pans. Id say the wine is a must if you want it to taste it's best, it really adds something to the flavour. We added some squid and scallops to the sauce too and it was delicious!

Try this with spinach stirred in for 1 minute and less of the tinned tomatoes, but add 4-6 cherry tomatoes

Made this last night used 3 garlic cloves and added a splash of white wine and a pinch of chili powder after tasting the sauce definitly gave it extra flavour, will be making again!
