Seafood Medley in a Spicy Tomato Sauce | Trader Joe's | 5 Ingredients | 15 minutes | Quick and Easy

You are going to want to RUN to Trader Joe's to get these simple ingredients. When I tell you we about licked the bowl- we may have licked the bowl. This is a simple throw-together weeknight meal that requires all Trader Joe's Ingredients- the star of this being the Spicy Chunky Tomato & Pepper Pasta Sauce! Man, does it pack a punch (it's definitely spicy- but a good spicy)! Pair the sauce with the seafood blend of shrimp, scallops, and calamari rings and you will feel like you're eating in a high-end restaurant! This is the perfect cozy weeknight meal that tastes way better than that frozen pizza. It takes 15 minutes from start to finish and will leave you wanting more!

This recipe is similar to a Cioppino, but is thicker and is not soup-like. Think of it as Cioppino's hearty older sister that cheat's her way through life and still gets good results. This is best served over a starch to help soak up the good spicy, tomatoey flavors! We had ours over rice and it was SO GOOD!
