Seafood Marinara Pasta Recipe


1 (16 ounce) package linguine pasta
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 small red onion, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tomatoes, seeded and diced
3 green onions, chopped
1 (8 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground thyme
2 pounds mussels, cleaned and debearded
1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup dry white wine
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 lemon – cut into wedges, for garnish


Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the linguine, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Heat another tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Stir in diced tomatoes and green onion; cook and stir until the tomatoes have softened. Stir onion mixture into the tomatoes, then add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, and thyme. Simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in mussels and shrimp, then pour in the wine and lemon juice. Cover and increase heat to high. Cook until shrimp have turned pink and mussels have opened, discarding any that have not opened. Serve over pasta and garnish with lemon wedges.
