  19. TIPS: 1
  20. You can use any kind of seafood you prefer in this dish
  21. Oysters (drained) are good if you like oysters
  22. (I add 1/2 cup of the oyster liquid with the oysters)
  23. A few other suggestions are shelled crawdads (not really seafood), clams, octopus, surimi chunks (imitation crab) and while rather pricey, lobster and crab meat are really delicious in this dish
  24. The ones I included are just my favorites
  25. Use your imagination to make the recipe suit you
  26. 2
  27. You can increase or decrease the amount of spaghetti or Alfredo sauce to suit your taste
  28. I personally like plenty of sauce with my pasta
  29. I like to dunk my bread in the sauce
  30. I also personally think all pasta dishes are better the second day after they have had ample time for the pasta to soak up some of the sauce flavors
  31. 3
  32. As with most of my recipes you can leave ingredients you don’t like out or add some you do like
  33. For instance if you like your pasta spicy add more red pepper flakes or some of your favorite hot sauce
  34. Depending on how spicy you want it you could also add some finely chopped jalapeno or cows ear (habanero) peppers (with or without the seeds)
  35. If you don’t care for mushrooms, or maybe red pepper flakes, then leave them out
  36. If you like it tell me so I can try your version
