Linguine With Broccoli and Bay Scallops

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by pattikay in L.A.

An attractive and yummy combination from the Frog Commissary Cookbook. Though I've never tried it, this would probably work with shrimp as well.

A terrific way to use bay scallops! Quite an easy recipe, too. The butter sauce is nice and garlicky. I cut the butter down to 1/2 cup total and cut the salt in half. Just to streamline a bit, I added the broccoli to the boiling pasta water during it's last 3 minutes of cooking time. Yes, I'm sure this would be quite good with shrimp also. I'll have to try that! Thanx!
