Dh's favorite pasta dish - red clam sauce - takes 10 minutes
This is not a dish I would usually like because of all the canned items ... it is really tasty, easy, and cheap.
Couple tablespoons olive oil, 2 cloves chopped garlic.
2 can chopped clams, 1 drained, one not
Frozen tiny shrimp, or really any other seafood you have.
2 can diced tomatoes - 1 drained, on not
red pepper flakes
2 TBSP tomato paste ( I cheat and use a splat of ketchup )
Sautee up garlic in olive oil ( chopped onion goes well here if you like ) , add all other ingredients ( spices etc. are to taste ) simmer about 15 minutes.
We like to serve with some frozen peas added in.
Its obviously a pantry type dish - but we even serve it company with fresh pasta and it is always a hit... t odress it up - throw in some olives , a piece of fresh tuna or even a few steamed clams in the shells.
