In a dash of oil, sautè the squid rings, then add mussels and king prawns, then cook quickly. Add two or three spoons of tomato passata, basil, salt ad sugar. Place your pasta in a saucepan with boiling water and cook until al dente. Season your spaghetti with the fish sauce. Arrange them into an alluminium foil over a baking tray, add a drizzle of oil and cook for 10-15 minutes. 

The ideal foil for a parcel is an alluminium one,  as it's easy to fold and seal it. You can also use an oven paper foil, that must be wet, so as to prevent browning. If you use an oven paper foil, you can seal helping yourself with some egg white.
In order to obtain a perfect dish when cooking it in a parcel, you need a little of foresight: don't put cold foods into the parcel, and don't arrange it straight on the grill.
