    ah I see, if I may suggest you a way to cook it... first only olive oil and garlic, when the garlic is golden remove it; put the prawns, they have to stay there 30 seconds, no more, and take them out.. put the clams in and have them go for a couple of minutes maximum and take them out; last put in the squid (cut in pieces) and have it go for 1 minute or so, also pour in some white wine (half a glass), cut the fire and let it rest 5 minutes.. when the pasta is cooked al dente (even better if rather than 1-2 minutes before you take it out 3-5 minutes in advance), add it to the sauce (but be sure that the sauce is hot again before adding pasta!) then pour in like 3-4 ladleful of water from the pasta, add the other fish and cover it... let it go for 4-5 minutes covered, then uncover it and move it a lot.. soon the water will dry out and will become a cream.. Enjoy with a bottle of Vermentino!
