Seafood Pasta

What better food than seafood. I know a lot of people can be intimidated by cooking seafood but it really isn’t all too hard if you keep the basics easy. This seafood pasta was super easy but boy is this delicious.

1 large brown onion

3 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 long red chilli, deseeded and finely diced

500g clams, thoroughly washed

100g salted butter

1/2 cup roughly chopped parsley

10g chives, finely diced

2. Cook clams and marinara mix with lemon juice and 1/2 the amount of lemon zest, salt and pepper with lid on for approximately 10minutes, while pasta is cooking
