So I picked up a couple of bags of mixed seafood in the frozen food section today as they were on sale. Mussels, octopus, calamari, monkfish and shrimp.

I'm thinking of making a nice pasta sauce and was wondering if anyone had any recs. I found these three. For some reason, the first gets my attention. I like the use of the white wine. Anyone? Paging Fabiene.

The first one sounds good.

You might also try sauteeing the seafood with garlic, olive oil, white wine, basil, parsley, fresh lemon juice, onion, and perhaps red pepper, and serving it over angel hair pasta.

Good idea.
ANother one is, depending on what is in the bag, doing it as a greek-style octopus stew. WIll try to dig up a recipe.

Have not tried this recipe but sounds reasonable. The smell is very characteristic; strong memories for me of my dad having the stuff boiling away on the gas stove. Red wine imparts a good strong edge to it

This one sounds kind of interesting, I might try it soon. It would probably taste pretty good with the shrimp, calamari, and monkfish, but I don't know about the mussels:

This recipe sounds kind of like the one that Stelios posted:

Here's another two that should work well with your mix:

Finally, you might even try a cajun-style dish:
