Sea Food Pasta


Although I'm not a very big fan of pasta, once in awhile I enjoy Italian Food. Got the inspiration for this recipe from Jamie Oliver.

Ingredients: Serve 4-5
Macaroni 400g
300g prawns 
100g cuttle fish
2 Carrots
1 stalk of Celery
5 leaves of Cabbage
1 onion minced
3 cloves garlic minced
4 ripe large tomatoes 
1 red bell pepper
1 Chicken cube dissolved in 1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp oregano
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper
Olive oil
dash of corn flour

Method:
First to make the pasta sauce:
Clean the sea food. Remove head of the prawns and de-vein. Remove shell if preferred. Clean, wash and cut the cuttle fish in to small pieces. Season the prawns and cuttle fish with salt and pepper. Add a dash of corn flour to cuttle fish.
Mince carrot, celery and cabbage in a food processor. Mix with Worcestershire sauce, fennel seeds, oregano and vinegar.Cut the red pepper in the strips.
Put the tomatoes in to boiled water for a minute and put a cross at the bottom with a knife and peel away the skins. Liquidize the tomatoes in a food processor and keep aside.

Heat a large pan with 3 tbsp olive oil. Fry the prawns till they turn orange color. Remove and keep aside. 
Then fry the cuttle fish till they curl for 1-2 minutes and keep aside.
Now add the garlic and onions and fry till they turn golden. Add in the minced vegs and fry till almost turning golden. Add in the chicken cube dissolved in hot water, red pepper strips, and liquidized tomatoes. Mix well. Add in the prawns and cuttle fish and cook on low heat. Season the sauce. (If the sauce seems dry add some boiling water from the paste to the sauce.)

Cook pasta according to the packet instructions. Make sure to salt the boiling water. Once cooked drain the pasta and add in to the Sauce and mix well. 
Serve Warm!!!
