Deliciously simple seared scallops simmered in a homemade marinara sauce and served over perfectly cooked spinach linguine. This fantastic dish is delicious, quick and easy. From my kitchen to yours, enjoy!
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to package directions.
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.
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.
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.
