Seafood pasta recipe?

Anyone got a really, really good seafood pasta recipe? I don't use canned seafood, can't stand the tinny taste, so I nned a recipe that is not too expensive and too fussy as this will also cater for kids too. So a good healthy recipe that will please everyone, kids included.

    This is one of my favorite recipes. It's actually from Weight Watchers, but you would NEVER know it. I serve it over pasta or egg noodles. Please keep in mind the key to this recipe tasting so delicious is using FRESH everything (parsley, lemon rind & juice). I also add bay scallops to this as well. Hope you enjoy.


    Cooking Spray

    1 1/4 Lb. Medium (uncooked) shrimp (peeled and de-veined)

    1/2 c. Bread Crumbs

    3 Tsp. Parsley (finely chopped)

    1 tsp. Lemon rind (grated)

    1/4 tsp. Salt

    3 Cloves of garlic (minced)

    2 Tsp. Fresh lemon juice

    4 tsp. Olive Oil

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place shrimp in a 9x11 pan (I use pyrex). Combine bread crumbs, parsley, lemon rind, salt and garlic. Stir in oil and juice. Sprinkle crumb mixture over shrimp. Bake at 400 13-15 minutes, until crumbs are browned. Makes 4 servings.

Separate onto 4 serving plates and garnish each plate with the grated cheese and chopped parsley. Serves 4 (Note: If you don't like clams or crab meat, you could just delete those and substitute an equal amount of shrimp...or, whichever seafood you prefer.)
