3-7..I died and went to pasta heaven tonight!

An old friend with a new twist.  Al Dente pasta with shrimp and sea scallops in a wine - butter-lemon sauce with just a touch of blue cheese and cream.


Sea Scallops
Sun dried cherry tomatoes
Olive oil
Garlic and Shallots
Red pepper flakes
Fresh lemon juice
Dry white wine
Blue cheese
Dill, oregano, dill,  and basil


Saute the garlic and shallots in olive oil with red pepper flakes and some coarsely chopped sun dried tomatoes.  Add the shrimp, scallops, parsley and cook for several minutes before adding the seasoning, and butter.  Continue cooking over low-medium heat then add a splash of wine and lemon juice.  About 5 minutes before the pasta is ready mix in about 1/4 cup of cream or whole milk and about one tablespoon of blue cheese.  Add the pasta to the sauce, mix well, and enjoy a feast from the pasta gods.
