How to cook
Prepare seafood
  • Slice the squid into rings.
  • Rinse the clams a few times under running water and soak in a bowl of water.
  • Put aside both ingredients until they are ready to cook.
Cook pasta
  • Bring a pot of water to a boil and add in a pinch of salt.
  • Cook the pasta in the boiling water for about 8-10 minutes until al dente or according to its packaging instructions. Al dente pasta is firm when held with tongs, but not stiff.
  • Drain the pasta in a colander and set it aside.
Start cooking
  • Saute the garlic in olive oil.
  • Add in the dried basil, paprika and salt and fry for about 10-15 minutes until the aroma of the spices is released.
  • Add in the squid and fry them until they turn fully opaque.
  • Pour in the cooking cream and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  • Throw in the broccoli florets and stir to coat them thoroughly with the sauce.
  • Add the clams into the pot and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer for about 3-4 minutes.
  • Serve the pasta on plates, and top with the sauce. Serve warm, and enjoy!
