Meal Monday: Spicy Seafood Pasta


I'm normally all about one stop grocery shopping - I'm the lazy type of person that would rather pay a little more for the convenience of only making one grocery run instead of getting the lowest prices at a few different stores.  Before Mariano's opened near our house, I didn't have one specific grocery store I visited - instead, I changed it up every week by either going to Jewel, Dominic's or Trader Joe's with the occasional Whole Foods trip.  If it was ever a TJ's week, you could bet this seafood pasta was on the menu.  I had to stop at Trader Joe's last week to get THE ice cream sandwiches (which are all gone, so sad) and figured while I was there, I would pick up the stuff to make this delicious dinner.  It was just as good as I remembered it and I have a feeling there might be more trips to TJ's in my near future. 

And don't worry, if you don't have a Trader Joe's near you, you can find any of these products at your local grocery store - I just think TJ's makes the best, most reasonably priced seafood blend!

Grocery List
3/4 lb linguini noodles
1 jar of TJ's Arriabata Pasta Sauce
1 bag TJ's Frozen Seafood Blend, thawed and drained of excess liquid
Fresh parsley, chopped
Parmesan cheese to taste


Directions
1) Boil water and cook noodles as directed on box.

2) While pasta is cooking, heat the arriabata sauce in a large saucepan with the THAWED seafood blend over medium heat.  The seafood will cook as the sauce heats which takes about 10 minutes.  The seafood is done cooking when it is opaque.


3) Drain noodles.

4) Reduce heat and toss the cooked linguini with the sauce/seafood mixture for about 3 minutes.


5) Serve with freshly chopped parsley and parmesan cheese.


It's really that simple!  If you're feeling fancy, you could totally add it in some onion, spinach or mushroom to take this dish to another level.  My husband also likes to throw red pepper flakes on top to really kick up the spicy.  Enjoy!

  1. We make this too, it's one of my favorite meals. Spicy+pasta+seafood=Amanda in heaven!! I don't know if you have a Costco membership, but if you do they sell a seafood melody that's great for this pasta

  5. I've never heard of this arrabiata sauce, but if it's spicy it sounds like something my husband would love! We get so tired of just using regular pasta sauce so this sounds like a good way to mix it up!

  12. You would have laughed so hard at me. This was my status last night: "when taking photography of food for one's blog, it is best for one to wait until there is no natural light left because this is when one eats dinner. it is also best for one to be by oneself to take quality shots of one cutting the produce. one should also have poor lighting. also one should live in a studio without counter space. this is what one should do. (NOT) #fail LOL" MAJOR props to you for always photographing things in a lovely way

  15. This is such a pretty and fresh looking dish with all of the basil. I can't quite do seafood with my pasta but I'm sure anything would be fabulous as a protein substitute. Yum!

  20. We finally had a TJ's open up in Tampa, so stopping on my way home is a lot more realistic than the day trips we took to Sarasota, lol. I'll have to remember to pick up their frozen medley and try this!
