This is a spicy seafood pasta that's unlike most seafood pastas! Neonata is an Italian condiment made with baby fish and sweet and hot peppers and it gives the sauce a really interesting flavor. I used canned scungilli for a meatier seafood and then brightened it all up with arugula and parsley. Definitely a favorite of mine! http://www.carolynscooking.com/orecchiette-with-scungilli-and-neonata-sauce/ —Carolyn Mazzocco

In This Recipe
Bring a pot of salted water to a rolling boil and and cook pasta 1 minute less than package directions.
Heat olive oil in a pan and add the garlic. Stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add scungilli to pan and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the neonata to the pan and stir.
Drain the pasta, reserving a cup of the cooking water, and add it to the pan along with the lemon juice, some parsley and a pinch of salt. Stir in pasta water as needed to coat the pasta.
Divide the pasta between four bowls, toss with arugula and garnish with more parsley.
