Sauté 4 cloves of cut garlic and one chopped onion with some olive oil in 5 1/2 Qt sauce pot.
Add one 16 oz can of crushed tomatoes and 8 oz of water. Add fresh basil, oregano, salt and pepper. (Let this cook for 20 minutes.)
Add clams and mussels and cover pot, cook until the clams and mussels open their shells.
Add shrimp until they turn pink and I cook yellow rice separately and add to fish.
Sometimes, I cook Linguine and call that frutti de mare. firm. You can also add a cut up lobster to this dish. If you do add the lobster, put it in the pot along with the mussels. If you need more liquid, you can add water or bottled clam juice.
1lb. large shrimp, 2 lbs. mussels, 2 dozen clams
