Why I Love This Recipe

What makes my recipe so special is my take on a Japanese-style twist of a classic mixed seafood pasta, featuring a creamy white wine sauce! I combines a medley of frozen seafood slowly simmered in white wine and clam juice, then enriched with cream and served over freshly cooked spaghetti!

Pairing Recommendations

Consider pairing your mixed Seafood Pasta with a simple vegetable dish like Stir Fry Bean Sprouts or Garlic Kale Stir Fry. These light-flavored vegetables will provide a nice contrast to the creamy pasta. Additionally, serve a briny Clam Miso Soup on the side to complement the seafood flavors.
