  3. Add the paprika, cayenne pepper, chilli powder, tomatoes, wine, tomato purée and sugar to the pan, give it all a stir, and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Stir in the seafood and cook for a further 3-4 minutes until the seafood is piping hot, then add the cream and warm through.
  5. Add the cooked spaghetti and reserved pasta water to the sauce and stir until the pasta is well coated. Divide between bowls, serve garnished with the basil leaves and seasoned with freshly ground black pepper.
