Scallop Pasta

I have officially made scallops for the first time!  Scallops are usually a pricey item on menus, so I was surprised to learn how easy they were to make.  Scallops not only taste delicious, but they also contain many beneficial nutrients…

  • Vitamin B12: helps for cardiovascular health
  • Omega-3 fatty acids: prevents blood clots, and helpful for brain memory and functions
  • Magnesium: relaxes blood vessels, and therefore lowering blood pressure and improving blood flow

My friends were having a St. Patrick’s Day party, so I thought it would the perfect time to make a big pasta dish.  I failed to get a picture of my friend’s Pesto Pasta Nests but they were delicious.  In addition to those, we filled our stomachs with the scallop pasta and plenty of Irish car bombs!
