Here in December with Christmas closing a great family meal to have is seafood and sausage marinara.  It is easy to prepare and combines great shell fish, sausage, and pasta.  Served with a side salad you have a meal that will put a smile on your family’s face.

Ingredients:
 
1 lbs of shrimp peeled and devined
1/2 pound of sea scallops cut into bite size pieces
1 lb a little neck clams
5 links of sweet italian sausage
2 tbs of butter
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 can of parmesan cheese
1 box of pasta of choice, I use regular spaghetti but any kind will do.  Linguini, Angel Hair for example would be wonderful.
The marinara sauce of your choice.  I used Alessio’s sauce because it’s thick, rich and wonderful and has no preservatives
 
Directions:
 
In sauce pan heat up the marinara sauce.  In large pot bring water and olive oil to a boil.  While your sauce and water is heating up get a large pan, melt butter and garlic.  In saute pan cook sausage evenly.  You can cut the sausage into bite size pieces if you want.  Place the clams in a pan, add butter, garlic  and a little water and cover.  The clams will open up after about 5 to 10 minutes.  Once they open remove and keep warm.  Now add the scallops in their juice and cook the scallops, this will take about five minutes.  Remove scallops and keep warm.  Now in the juice left saute the shrimp until cooked, approximately 3 minutes, they don’t take long.  Now it’s time to put this masterpiece together:  Take each plate and spread pasta, place clams around the edge in shell.  Place shrimp scallops and sausage on top of the pasta. Now spread some marinara sauce over the top.  Take your can of parmesan cheese and sprinkle over the top.  You have now accomplished an outstanding meal as well as a great presentation.  Break out a bottle of red wine and you are in pasta heaven, cheers !!
