    Preparation:35min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the angel hair pasta and cook until al dente; 3 to 4 minutes. Drain and keep warm.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Add the sausage slices and cook until lightly browned on both sides; about 2 minutes per side.
    3. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in 2 tablespoons of butter along with the onion, garlic, capsicum, stir fry vegetables, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until the sausage is no longer pink in the centre and the vegetables have softened; 10-12 minutes.
    4. Meanwhile place the clams, mussels and prawns in a steamer over 2cm of boiling water and cover. Remove the prawns once they turn pink; after about 3 minutes. Remove the clams and mussels as soon as they open; after 3 to 5 minutes all together. Discard any clams and mussels that do not open. Set the seafood aside and keep warm.
    5. Place the scallops into the frypan with the vegetable mixture and gently cook until the scallops are no longer opaque in the centre; about 3 minutes.
    6. Gently stir in the steamed seafood, parsley and remaining 2 tablespoons of butter.
    7. Serve the seafood and vegetable mixture over a bed of angel hair pasta.

    Made this tonight for hubby excluded the mussels and clams which he does not like and used fresh veggies that I sauteed. Added some lemon pepper seasoning. He loved it. Thanks so much for the post.  -  02 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My husband feel in love all over again today.I made a few changes for taste reasons but basically I followed the recipe as written. I used spicey sausage and made my stir fry vegetables from my garden that I froze this summer. I don't eat seafood and I am making an effort to learn how to cook it for my seafood loving husband. So after the vegetables and sausage finished cooking I removed some for my self and continued on with the recipe. The first thing Bill said as I set the bowl in front of him was you are learning girl! He took his first bite and then didn't say another word until his dish was empty. He declared it wonderful filling and full of flavor. This dish makes even the most amateur of cooks look good. A good dish to serve when you want to impress the boss or in laws.  -  03 Feb 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My family is not crazy about mussels, clams or scallops so I made it with 2 lbs of shrimp and a little extra sausage, outstanding!  -  18 Sep 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
