This was delicious! Added white wine and chilli flakes as suggested and used a pack of mussels and a pack of prawns instead of a seafood mix as we don't like the squid. At the end I stirred in some chopped rocket and a few black olives as I had these left in the fridge. Will definately make again.

A clever one-pot! I used basil instead of parsley and also added frozen roasted Mediterranean vegetables

Delicious.... Added a few extras...tbsp capers; pinch chilli flakes; used fish stock (800 ml) and one change with a main ingredient....using Sainsburys Free From spaghetti which is fantastic and not so filling. Pasta takes a little longer to cook; so cooked for 10 minutes before adding in the seafood...this is a must try and also a keeper!

This recipe is really delicious, I have however modified it slightly and I fry off chorizo and add this at the last minute with the freshly shelled prawns. It gives it a real kick and a lovely flavour. candy.

I made this for my wife and I - She rarely praises my cooking attempts, but she did with this one - tasted great and quick and so easy to make. I have now shared this recipe with my sister and a colleague at work who rates himself in the kitchen. I will definitely make again

Made this yesterday, added chili as suggested by others & added 1L chicken stock like the recipe says. I didn't have any problems with the sauce as when you cook the pasta in it it thickens and because very yummy!

Enjoyed this but might go a bit easier on the stock next time to get a thicker sauce. Good flavours though.

Made this for the first time without looking at any of the comments - however, I found that 1Ltr of water was far too much, also added a pinch of chilli to give it a kick...........
