Do you cook with marinara mix?

I have a serious seafood craving and the local market has a good looking marinara mix. If I want to make a pasta sauce with it, do I make a tomato based sauce first and then add the marinara mix at the end?
Does anyone have any other ideas on how to use it?

We have it occasionally. We grab a jar of marinara sauce (or a packet, can't remember) from Woolies/Coles, and add it to that after cooking it first. Then serve with cooked spaghetti or fettuccine. Yum!

Even though I like mussels on their own I find the flavor to strong in supermarket mixes. They put WAY to much of it in.
So I make my own with white fish, prawns squid or calamari. Then maybe a couple of mussels.
I either make my own sauce or buy a pasta sauce.
I don't really lie creamy sauces with seafood do its always tomatoe.
I might actually make some tonight!

I put it through a basic risotto to make a seafood rissotto (i.e. cook the rice in one cup of wine and as much chicken or fish stok as needed) and stir throught the marina mix.

Make a simple tomato sauce and just add the seafood for the last 2 mins or until it is cooked through.
Other things you could use it for are a seafood chowder, a seafood pie or seafood pizza. Make sure you rinse it first and use the same day you buy it.

Must put glasses on as I was wondering why you would be asking who cooked with a certain "herbal mix" lol.....

If adding to a tomato sauce, I would fry the mix separately in a garlic oil mix. Maybe add a splash of white wine to help deglaze the yummy bits. Then tip into the tomato sauce (or vice versa). Let it simmer briefly to meld flavours and a serve.

I'm no chef.... But this one works a treat
One little chilli, garlic and ginger
Fry with oil / butter mix
Then splash in lime juice and a teaspoon of brown sugar ( something about enhancing flavours - again not a chef!!)
Serve on rice.
We aren't chilli fans at all, but this is a fab of ours! Everyone '"trades" a scallop for a prawn or a mussel for a calamari etc, the kids enjoy it.
