Seafood Fra Diavolo

Pasta with loads of seafood in a spicy tomato sauce, a go to of mine when I go out for Italian food

Who’s ready for a spicy pasta dish? Seafood Fra Diavolo is pasta in a spicy tomato sauce with tons of seafood. Here I have shrimp, scallops, calamari, and clams all cooked to perfection. This is a dish I would always order at Italian restaurants cause I’m a sucker for seafood. The seafood paired with the pasta and the heat from the sauce is a combo I love. You are able to customize this dish with the seafood of your choice, same with the noodles. Make this for your next Italian feast.
