I love seafood and i love pasta, nothing better than combining both with lots of herbs and fresh tomatoes!
I used what i had in my freezer but feel free to add different fishes or shellfish. Mussel and clams would be great. Add to tomato sauce with other seafood and once shells are opened, it means they are cooked. Toss with pasta and serve hot with crusty garlic bread!
