Spicy prawn and squid fettuccini

On Sunday I picked up my brand new vitamix blender. I have been playing around with whole fruit juicing, soups, sauces and icecream and look forward to sharing more recipes soon. 

This recipe was really tasty and best thing is you know exactly what is in the sauce ... No preservatives, just good old fashioned veggies.

Give it a go - hope you like it ...

Serves 2 

4 ripe tomatoes 
1/4 onion
1/4 red capsicum 
2 fresh basil leaves
2 tsp chopped fresh parsley
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp crushed chilli
1 cup water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp balsamic vinegar 
1 tsp sugar or sweetener if you prefer
Pepper to taste 
2 squid tubes
6 green prawns
2 serves of Fettuccini cooked as per instructions on pack

Cook fettuccini as per the instructions on the pack then set aside 

Put remaining ingredients (except the seafood) into vitamix or blender/food processor and blend until smooth. Transfer to a large frypan and reduce liquid until it creates a thick tomato sauce. 

Cut squid into squares and score diamond shapes into the flesh. This will give great shape plus something for the sauce to stick to. 

Drop squid and prawns into the sauce and cook until cooked though.

Add the fettuccini to the tomato sauce, toss and serve with peppery rocket leaves.

Serve immediately.

NB: ensure your prawns are deveined and cleaned prior to adding to your sauce. I like prawns with the tails in tact but you can choose any prawns you like.
