Linguine with Seafood Sauce
When I was very young, my father's mother always made a tomato-based sauce for our all-seafood, Italian-American Christmas Eve dinners. In later years, my mother took over the tradition. Sometimes she's happy with a simple tomato-calamari sauce; other times she goes over the top, with shrimp, cockles, mussels, scungilli and lobster. Once in a while she even makes her own linguine to serve with the sauce.
