Fresh Tomato and Oregano Sauce with Seafood Linguine

My neighbour gave me a quite alot of their own grown tomatoes.My tomato plants from garden produce some tomatoes but not as much as my neighbour.I crack my head thinking what should I do with all the overripe fresh tomato.Well,I love a special red tomato sauce serve with seafood pasta at a Italian restaurant in Brooklyn where I used to lived but I can't remember the name of this seafood pasta dish .I keep "googling " sort of red sauce name but still no luck! Anyway,I created my own red tomato sauce with fresh tomato and fresh Oregano from my own garden .Here is goes...Fresh Tomato and Oregano with Seafood Linguine . Ingredients For Tomato Sauce:

2 lb Fresh Tomato- (wash,cut and blend)

1 cup Parmesan cheese

3 tbsp sugar

1 tsp salt

2 sprig fresh Oregano-(remove leaves and wash)

8 clove garlic (sliced)

3 tbsp olive oil


1 box/pack linguine

I lb clean frozen clam

15 clean and deviened shrimp

Parmesan cheese for sprinkle Fresh Oregano from my garden

1:Fill a large stockpot with water. Add in salt ,let the water rolling boil,add in pasta ,cook until al dented,sieved set aside or cook accordingly to the box instruction

2:Blend the clean and cut tomato until fine or puree.Prepare stock pot at high heat with olive oil,add in garlic ,fry until brown not burn.Add in blended tomato sauce,reduce heat to medium.Add in salt,sugar ,fresh oregano and Parmesan cheese into the sauce.Let it simmer until boil,then add in shrimp and clam.Cook for 5 minutes.

3:Add pasta into fresh tomato sauce ,mixed well.Sprinkle some pameseran cheese on the top.Serve warm.


I find homemade fresh tomato sauce is really freshening and mellow compare with ready made pasta sauce.This fresh tomato sauce with fresh oregano was surprisingly tasty, really good.I definitely will make this tomato sauce again. Although it might be soupy for the pasta but I really like the texture and flavour of fresh tomato and oregano.

I also submit my special dish- Fresh Tomato and Oregano with Seafood Linguine to Andreas Recipes for Grow Your Own entry for this month! Home grow Fresh Oregano! See you there!

Your oregano looks great and how lucky you are to have nice neighbors who share their fresh tomatoes! I like seafood with tomato sauce too, more so than cream sauces. Yours looks very tasty and fresh.

Yum yum....seafood pasta with tomato-based sauce is one of my ultimate fav! Have not tried using frozen clams though. How do you ensure they are fresh?
