Recipe by erinsky

You could also use small shrimp or lump crab meat for this easy pasta dish. Use more crushed red chili if a you like more heat.

I used this recipe because I wanted to use up some frozen Bay Scallops. I used the suggestion from other reviewers to cut down on the butter and oil. We enjoyed this dish and I would not hesitate to use it again! Kudos on the find!!!
