  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 6 cups canned whole tomatoes with juice, chopped

  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • 1 (16 ounce) package linguine

  1. Heat crushed garlic and 2 tablespoons oil in a large saucepan over medium heat until garlic starts to sizzle, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes with juice, red pepper flakes, oregano, basil, and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook linguine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain and keep warm.

  3. While the linguine is cooking, heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Stir in shrimp and scallops and cook, stirring frequently, until shrimp turn pink, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.

  4. Stir shrimp, scallops, mussels, and parsley into tomato mixture; cook until sauce begins to bubble and mussels open, about 7 minutes. Pour sauce over linguine and serve.
