Directions

In a 2- to 3-quart pan, stir 2 tablespoons oil and garlic over medium-high heat until garlic is soft.
Add tomato puree, wine, capers, and 1/4 cup chopped pars ley.
Simmer, uncovered, until sauce thickens slightly, about 10 minutes.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Let cool.
Cut 4 sheets cooking parchment, each 15 by 24 inches.
Lay 1/2 of scallops and shrimp in center of each paper, then flank with 1/2 of clams and mussels.
Pour 1/2 of the tomato sauce over each portion of scallops and shrimp; top each with a parsley sprig.
To seal each packet, bring together short ends of paper and fold over 1 inch twice, then fold under ends 2 or 3 times and tuck under seafood.
Transfer packets to 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.
Bake in a 425° oven until clams and mussels pop open, about 15 minutes (open 1 end of packet to check; reseal if not done and continue baking).
If using 1 oven, switch pan positions halfway.Meanwhile, cook linguine in a 5- to 6-quart pan in about 3 quarts boiling water until just barely tender to bite, 3 to 4 minutes for fresh pasta, about 8 minutes for dry pasta.
Drain noodles and place in a warm serving bowl.
Add remaining 1/2 cup olive oil and chopped parsley; mix lightly.
Keep warm.
Transfer packets, seam sides up, to 4 dinner plates.
At the table, open each packet, folding back parchment and tucking excess under.
Add about 1/2 of the noodles to each packet alongside seafood.
