Ingredients:

  • 1 box of your choice of pasta (I like to use Thick Spaghetti or Fettucine)

Instructions:

For the pasta:

  • Heat up enough water for your pasta, I’d guess about 3-4 cups full.
  • Bring to a boil & add your pasta
  • Add 1 teaspoon of salt & oil (any oil is ok– this is to make sure your pasta doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot)
  • Cook according to the instructions in the back of your pasta box
  • Remove by straining your pasta w/ a colander
  • Rinse pasta w/ COLD water to ensure it from overcooking

  • Clean your seafood in some water + cornstarch and set it sit on the side

  • Heat up a pot w/ at least 5 inch sides w/ 3 tablespoons of butter
