seafood pasta

I made pasta, again, the other night. I know it’s a problem. I need to venture away from the world of pasta that I surround myself in. I have quinoa, brown rice, risotto,  couscous…you name it in my pantry. Yet, pasta seems to always rise to the top for me.

Anyway, I made a simple seafood pasta the other night. The simplicity of the recipe was mainly due to the fact that I was out of some staple ingrediants like onions, canned tomatoes, white wine etc.

 Here’s the quick and easy scampi recipe (without butter).

Boil salted water for pasta and cook pasta

At the same time, in a seperate pan, saute 3 cloves of garlic in vegetable oil

Add red pepper flakes

Stir in calamari, shrimp, scallops and add salt/pepper

Cook until opaque (approx. 7 min)

Turn off heat and add lemon juice from  1/2 lemon and fresh parsley
