Seafood Spaghetti

My Technical Flats class had a potluck dinner for class, but I hadn't been able to bring anything to share, so I decided to make up for it the week after with this spaghetti! Yes, my class is really lax and fun :D

This is a super-flexible, just make stuff up as you go recipe. I liked the way it turned out ^u^v

shrimp, peeled, beheaded, de-veined, and lime juiced (any other seafood you may wish to add is fine, too)
diced veggies (I used celery and carrot)
diced onion
1 big can tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
black pepper

Saute onions in hot oil. Add shrimp and just let them turn red a bit (don't overcook)

I steamed my veggies beforehand because they are harder, but if you are using softer veggies such as broccoli you don't have to do that

Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, and veggies

Break up some noodles and throw them in with the sauce. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until noodles are cooked through, stirring occasionally

Keep stirring occasionally to keep the noodles from sticking. Crack some black pepper on top right before serving!
