Frozen seafood cocktail is available all year round in the frozen food cabinets at your supermarket - it's ideal for making this quick and easy pasta dish.

Ingredients

Fresh Pasta, raw

300 g, spaghetti or linguine

Calorie controlled cooking spray

5 spray(s)

Spring Onions

6 medium, trimmed and finely chopped

Garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

Tinned Tomatoes

400 g, chopped, with herbs, (14oz)

Seafood selection

450 g, fresh or frozen (thawed) seafood cocktail

Black pepper

¼ teaspoons, freshly ground

Parsley, fresh

2 tablespoons, chopped (flat-leaf, if possible)

Instructions

  1. Cook the spaghetti or linguine in boiling, salted water for 10 - 12 minutes, or according to pack instructions, until just tender.
  2. Meanwhile, spray a large non-stick frying pan with low fat cooking spray. Sauté the spring onions and garlic gently until softened, about 2 – 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain any liquid from the seafood cocktail and add to the tomatoes. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes.
  3. Drain the pasta, return it to the saucepan and add the seafood sauce. Stir and season with pepper - you shouldn't need any salt. Serve, scattered with chopped fresh parsley.Cook’s tip: For a bit of heat, add a finely chopped fresh red chilli, cooking it with the spring onions.
