Step 1:
Boil salted water in a large pan. Cook the spaghetti, with a tablespoon of oil, until it is 'al dente'. Drain, put back into the pan, mix with the remaining oil, cover and keep warm.

Step 2:
In a saucepan bring the stock and lemon juice to the boil. Add cauliflower and carrots and cook for 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Step 3:
Heat half the butter in a frying pan. Add the onions and zucchini slices and fry for 3 minutes add the prawns and garlic, and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
Step 4:
Add the precooked vegetables and stock to the pan and heat. Season the sauce with salt and pepper and stir in the remaining butter. Add the mussels, prawns and calamari and heat through.
