Carrot(s)

1 medium, finely chopped

Celery

1 individual, finely chopped

Garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

Anchovy fillets in oil, drained

Fresh flat-leaf parsley

2 tbs, chopped

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery and cook, stirring, for 6–8 minutes or until softened and lightly golden. Add garlic and anchovy and cooking, stirring, for 3–5 minutes or until anchovy breaks down.
  2. Add pasta sauce, tomato paste, chilli and sugar and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes or until slightly thickened (add a little water if the sauce is too thick). Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water, following packet instructions, or until just tender. Drain. Cut calamari tubes into 5mm-thick slices.
  4. Add calamari, fish, prawns and mussels to sauce. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes or until seafood is just cooked through and mussels open (discard any that do not open). Serve pasta topped with marinara sauce and sprinkled with parsley.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Green salad of mixed lettuce leaves, cucumber, green capsicum and snow pea sprouts, drizzled with lemon juice.TIP: Pot-ready mussels have been cleaned and the beards removed. Find them at fishmongers or the seafood counter of some supermarkets. To save time, you can use 600g marinara mix instead of buying and preparing individual amounts of seafood.
