Chipotle Shrimp or Scallop Scampi With Fettuccine

Total Time
Prep 25 mins
Cook 15 mins

This is a restaurant-quality dish that takes little time to prepare and can be made using either shrimps or scallops or 1 pound of both! You can use spaghetti in place of the fettuccine if desired. You can also increase the amount of shrimp or scallops. Serve this with garlic bread, Kittencal's Parmesan Garlic Bread or Garlic Toast or #152138...sooooooo good!

I liked this very much however DH was not that fond of it, so the 4 start is a combination of my 5 star and his 3 star (guess he's a traditional pasta guy.) I cut the recipe in 1/2 and used a specialty spinache/garlic pasta. If I was to make again think I'd add more garlic and shallots.
