Who says sophisticated can’t be quick and easy. This pasta
dish with sweet scallops & snow peas are delicious and so
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook the pasta in boiling water with 1 tbsp salt. It should
be al dente (about 7-8 minutes), drain and place in a large
serving bowl. Cover to keep warm while you do the finishing
touches to the scallops.
In the meantime, in a large skillet, heat the oil over
medium heat and sauté the shallots and garlic until the
shallots soften and the aroma makes you moan…2-3 minutes is all
Add the scallops and cook for 2 minutes or so per side. Add
the snow peas, herbs, pepper and the white wine and cover.
Allow the scallops to poach in the white wine for 3-4 minutes
(a little longer if the scallops are large).
Scoop the scallops and snow peas over the pasta. Turn the
heat up to high and return the skillet to the heat. Allow the
sauce to come to a boil and reduce a bit (1-2 minutes) and pour
over the pasta. Toss and serve adding some more fresh herbs and
