Spicy seafood pasta is an unreal combination. When we were in Italy, we probably had 8 different dishes of seafood pasta. It’s just too good!! We stumbled upon Rossini Ristorante Pizzeria while walking down an alley in Milan and it was THE BEST. Brick walls and ceiling, very cozy and kind of a romantic spot. Even their bathrooms were really cute lol. I’d for sure add it to your restaurant list if you’re heading to Milan! Also, check out my Milan post for more recommendations!

Seafood pasta sounds a little intimidating to make. Just sounds like a ton of steps, a lot of ingredients and work. Not this one though! I did use a can of crushed tomatoes so it does give the pasta more of a red sauce instead of my perfect dish in Milan. This one has a kick too!!

Spicy Seafood Pasta

Prep time: 20 minutes | Cook time: 15 minutes | Serves: 2, large bowls | gluten free & dairy free

  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped

  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped

  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper

  • pink salt to taste

  • olive oil

  • 1 c chardonnay wine - you want a dry white

  • 1 can fire roasted tomatoes - try to use no added salt

  • parsley

  • 1 box noodles - I used Ancient Harvest gf noodles

  • Seafood - shrimp, octopus & squid


  1. Drizzle olive oil in a pan & and sauté onions until golden brown, add in garlic, red pepper and salt - cook 2 minutes.

  2. Add chardonnay and cook for about 4 minutes then add in the whole can of crushed tomatoes.

  3. Meanwhile cook pasta and boil seafood. Bring a pot of water to boil and add the squid for about 30 seconds then transfer to a bowl and slice into pieces. Do the same for octopus

  4. Cook your noodles as directed on the box and set aside

  5. Add all seafood to the sauce mixture then add in the noodles OR add sauce/seafood to a serving bowl with the noodles

Side note: seafood amount really depends on how much seafood you prefer. I used already cooked frozen shrimp and told the seafood market I was making the dish for 2 people.
