READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Kasha

My favorite pasta recipe, the mustard is tangy and elegant. Very fast to make, use the small and less expensive scallops.

We used prawns, but looking forward to trying with scallops. The sauce was lovely and delicate, I opted to add another 1/2 cup wine since I had a lot of prawns. Thanks for a lovely dinner.
