Pasta recipe for you

I made something yummy tonight so I thought I'd share.


Ingredients list : one bag of frozen shrimp and scallops (about a pound?), thawed
2 Tbsp Oil
2 Tbsp Butter (oh..forgot to mention its not a low fat recipe)
2 cloves garlic minced (or more is good too)
a bunch of sun dried tomatoes chopped coarsely
2 Tbsp capers
1 tsp or more of dried basil
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
pinch or two of salt
splash or two of lemon juice
1/4 tsp or so red pepper flakes or crushed red pepper
Parmesan cheese

Heat oil and butter in a pan, then gently sautee the minced garlic. Takes about 5 minutes and do not let it brown.
Turn up the heat to medium high and add the thawed and rinsed seafood, shaking the pan and stirring to get all the garlicky buttery oil all over it and to keep them from cooking too fast.
Add everything else except the parmesan and stir, shaking the pan. There should be a fair amount of liquid in the pan...this is good. If there isn't then add some fish stock.
When the shrimp and fairly pink but NOT overcooked throw in some parmesan and toss things around.

Toss in about half a 400gr pack of cooked spaghetti and toss it all together...add some more lemon if you want and some more parmesan. Should serve 2 or more people depending on the appetites.
