DH and I had fantastically fresh scallops and shrimp. Since we'd eaten them plain the night prior, we wanted a pasta dish that would accent (rather than overpower) great seafood. This was perfect! To cut down of calories, I subbed the olive oil with butter and skipped adding it to the sauce later. *Make Sure* you have a light crusty bread to soak up the sauce. It's a very delicate sauce worth scooping from the bottom of your pasta bowl!
