DIRECTIONS

  • Combine and heat both oils in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add peppers and saute until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer peppers to a bowl.
  • Add sundried tomatoes, shrimp, scallops, 1/4 cup of basil, garlic and oregano to the same skillet and saute until the shrimp are just opaque in the centre, about 3 minutes.
  • Transfer shrimp and scallop mixture to the bowl with peppers, cover and set aside.
  • Add broth, wine and tomato paste to same skillet.
  • Boil until sauce thickens slightly, stirring occasionally, about 6 minutes.
  • During the last minute add cream if you are using it, and let cook an extra minute or two.
  • Meanwhile cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted, oiled water until tender, but still firm to bite.
  • Drain; return pasta to same pot.
  • Add contents of bowl, sauce, remaining 1/4 cup of basil and cheese to pasta.
  • Toss over low heat until warmed through and sauce coats pasta.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste and enjoy.
  • Note: If all peppers are not available any combination will do.
  • Shrimps and Scallops can be replaced with chicken.
