Pappardelle Puttanesca

Rating: 4 stars 10
A fantastic variation of a simple but delicious Italian dish, my Puttanesca is a mildly spicy white wine tomato sauce with fresh garlic, mushrooms, capers, and anchovy-stuffed green olives. The anchovy-stuffed green olives are easy to find next to the rest of the canned olives at any major grocery store.

Marinara with White Wine

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
This is a rich marinara with white wine and anchovies. It's rather soupy, so simmer it as long as it takes to reach your desired consistency.

Amazing White Clam Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars 129
I got this recipe from an old boyfriend, and have modified it over the years. My husband and I have this at least every two weeks with a big loaf of garlic bread. It's very easy, but very delicious and filling.

Cajun Ponchartrain Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars 39
My take on the Ponchartrain sauce served at a popular seafood restaurant chain in my town. Although I prefer Snapper, it may be ladled over any grilled, blackened, steamed, or pan fried fish. Very elegant and easy! Great idea for a romantic candlelight dinner for two.

Lobster Mornay Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars 102
This recipe is very simple to make, and you can substitute crab or shrimp for the lobster. I use all three when we are craving seafood. Serve over rice or pasta.

Lobster Sauce for Mashed Potatoes

Rating: 5 stars 8
This dish whips boring mashed potatoes into a seafood frenzy with the flavor of lobster. Great with salmon and asparagus!

Lobster Tomato Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars 4
Another one of grandma Puglia's treasures! The lobster flavor from the shell infuses into a rich and delicious tomato sauce. You may remove the lobster meat and add to the sauce or serve separately. Serve over linguine.

Spicy Shrimp in Cream Sauce
Rating: 4.5 stars 28

Shrimp in a spicy cream sauce to be served as an appetizer with hot-baked French bread (for dipping), or over fettuccini (as a not-so-light meal). Fun to prepare in front of guests as a prelude to a nice seafood dinner! Use any hot pepper you like, Cajun seasoning, or even hotter!
