I love scallops and came up with a few different recipes by playing around. I always get rave reviews.

Really tasty Jules for something so quick and easy! When cooking the only pasta I had was a miniature macaroni variety not vaguely like linguine, but still tasted great and I think any of your favorite pasta varities would be fine. The sauce gave the pasta a wonderful spicy flavor.
