In the words of my sweetie, 'Yummy... Very yummy'.
4 people made this
- 250g vermicelli pasta
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 225g mild Italian sausage, cut into 1cm slices
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 orange pepper, diced
- 1 (450g) bag stir-fry vegetables
- 1 tablespoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

MethodPrep:35min ›Cook:20min ›Ready in:55min
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil over high heat. Add the pasta, and cook until al dente, 3 to 4 minutes; drain and keep warm.
- Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the sausage slices, and cook until lightly browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium, and stir in 2 tablespoons of butter along with the onion, garlic, pepper, 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.
- Meanwhile, place the clams, mussels and prawns in a steamer over 2.5cm 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.
- Place the scallops into the frying pan with the vegetable mixture, and gently cook until the scallops are no longer opaque in the centre, about 3 minutes. Gently stir in the steamed seafood, parsley, and remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Serve the seafood and vegetable mixture over a bed of 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

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
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
