This recipe is absolutely fantastic and so easy to make! I could not find spinach linguine where I live so I used regular linguine. My husband and I loved it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to package directions.
  2. In the meantime, in a saucepan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons oil and when hot, working in batches, add the scallops and sear on both sides, until golden brown, about 1 to 2 min per side. Remove and set aside.
  3. To the pot, add the garlic and cook, stirring, until the garlic begins to brown about 1 minute. Add in the tomato sauce and red pepper flakes and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer 10 minute. Add the scallops, basil, parsley and lemon juice and cook about 1 minute. Season with salt and black pepper.
  4. Drain the pasta and add to the pot with the sauce; toss. Divide the pasta and scallops among bowls, drizzle with olive oil and serve.
