The Best Marinara Sauce Recipe, authentic Italian made with San Marzano tomatoes, garlic and basil! Easy, chunky, creamy and hearty, this is the only recipe you'll need | CiaoFlorentina.com @CiaoFlorentina
“I make this using a store bought seafood marinara mix – prawns/shrimp, mussels, fish and calamari. But you can use any seafood you want!” | Seafood Gratin Pasta Bake, topped with crunchy panko bread crumbs
I call this Seafood Paella ‘cheap cheap’ because it is! Seafood Marinara Mix is usually much cheaper than fish fillets and a half kilo usually only costs me $6 – $7. This recipe feeds 3 adults (well 2 adults and 1 teenager who eats more than his father) and 2 primary aged children with leftovers for lunch the next day. We made this on MoM Cook Club LIVE too! You can watch the video here (the Paella is after the Dark Chocolate Banana Bread):
A low-fat chilli seafood spaghetti is perfect for midweek entertaining. Try replacing the marinara mix with raw, peeled prawns for a spin on this tasty pasta.
I’ve used a frozen marinara mix as the base for this recipe, adding fresh seafood to liven it up. You can adjust the amounts and kinds of seafood according to taste. If you like it a little spicy, add some chilli flakes to the onion mix.
