Didn't rate last time

This was tasty but not amazing. Quick and easy to make although I did find there was too much stock so I'd maybe reduce that and add wine next time. Maybe glass of wine and half litre of stock would be enough. Good, healthy mid week meal however which we'll definitely make again.

This is delicious. We probably eat this a couple of times a month and always end up with clean plates. I add a seafood mix and some prawns and cooked the pasta in the stock as per recipe and it always turns out great. Not many ingredients, but oh so tasty....

Great, easy recipe with little ingredients yet big taste. The only thing I changed was the seafood mix. Wanting something more fresh, I used raw, fresh prawns and scallops that were fried separately and added near the end. This gave the dish a rich, beautiful taste, which I'll be trying again soon!

My partner and I made this last night- it was delicious!! Will defiantly be making it again. We cooked the pasta separately and also didn't add as much stock. We used a packet of mixed seafood then an extra pack of mussels in garlic. Chilli flakes and a squeeze of lime! Yum!

I made this for my husband and two children, one of which is a vegetarian so the seafood was swapped in for quorn chicken pieces, whilst the rest of us tucked in to the delicious seafood! very yummy, very fresh, very quick! loved it xx I too used fresh seafood but i did cook the pasta as it said on the method and it worked a treat! xx

Absolutely simple and yet tasty. I added white wine as recommended and cooked the pasta separately. I used angel hair. Used 500cc stock and 100 cc white wine. Also used fresh seafood rather than frozen ones. Salmon, cod n prawns. Yum. Will definitely make again. Esp on a busy weekday

My husband has never considered pasta to be proper food but he just loves it & it is so simple to make. As others have done, I add smoked paprika, & I also add at least twice the amount of mixed seafood. Just yummy & so tasty.

Yum! Added red pepper flakes, cooked my pasta separately (wild chanterelle mushroom ravioli). Quick, easy, and our 3yr old son loves it too!
