This is a recipe I found on AllRecipes. I've changed it a bit to suit my family's tastes. It is a WONDERFUL sauce that truly enhances the seafood you use in it. I choose to use primarily scallops and calamari rings with a bit of shrimp in it, however, you can probably add any seafood you like to it and still have it come out wonderful! Serve this one up with some fresh bread and you'll be in heaven!
- 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 8 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 shallots, minced
- 3 cups tomatoes, diced (can use canned but I prefer fresh!)
- 8 ounces tomato sauce
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (or to taste, I do more!)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup red wine (DRY!, Cab, Zin or Syrah)
- 3 ounces tomato paste, half can
- 1 lb spaghetti (or linguine)
- 8 ounces bay scallops
- 8 ounces squid rings
- 4 ounces shrimp (peeled and tails removed)
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley (chopped, to taste)
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil (chopped, to taste)
- pepper, to taste
