  • If you don’t have a large enough pot to toss all the shellfish and pasta together, you can always transfer everything to the largest bowl or platter you have, or go old-school and just pour the sauce over the pasta at the table.Get the recipe: the whole menu:¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil1 medium onion, finely chopped4 garlic cloves, sliced¾ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes3 tablespoons tomato paste1 cup dry white wine1 28-ounce can whole peeled tomatoesKosher salt1 pound spaghetti2 pounds mussels, scrubbed, debearded2 pounds large shrimp, peeled, deveined3 tablespoons unsalted butter3 tablespoons finely chopped parsley1 tablespoon fresh lemon juiceLemon wedges (for serving)RECIPE PREPARATIONHeat oil in a large heavy pot over medium. Cook onion, stirring occasionally, until golden and softened, 8–10 minutes. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and season with salt. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant and garlic is softened, about 2 minutes. Add tomato paste and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly darkened in color and starts sticking to bottom of pan, about 4 minutes. Add wine and cook, stirring often, until the smell of the alcohol is almost completely gone, about 4 minutes. Add tomatoes and juices, crushing with your hands, and increase heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens slightly, 8–10 minutes. Taste and season sauce with salt.Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until very al dente, about 3 minutes less than package directions.

    I love how whenever a girl comes in here to talk about how cute they think Andy is, some guy always has to chime in and remind her that he's if that some how take away from the fact that he's physically attractive??? Kelly McGillis is a lesbian, but that doesn't stop fan boys from talking about how hot she was in Top Gun. When Ellen Page came out, did she suddenly stop being considered attractive? Or Portia Di Rossi? Honestly, it's all redundant.
