WOO HOO! It’s Friday and that means time to cook! Today we are going to skip the grill and make a fantastic pasta dish. If you like the cream based sauces on your pasta you are going to love this. It is super easy and full of flavor.
Let’s Get Cooking!
What You Need:
- 2 lbs of sea scallops
- 4 oz of Jarlsberg cheese spread/dip
- 4 tbsp of butter
- 4 oz. heavy cream
- Pasta of your choice, I prefer angel hair pasta but spaghetti, fettuccine or even a rotini pasta would work well.
What You Do:
- Get the water boiling for your pasta. You can go ahead and start cooking the pasta now and it should be done once the scallops and sauce are done.
- Melt the butter in a saute pan, we are using an electric skillet because that is what we have
- Once the butter is melted add in scallops and saute them until they are no longer translucent, this should take about 5 to 7 minutes.
- Remove scallops
- In the same saute pan (do not wipe clean) add in the cream and Jarlsberg spread and whisk together until you have a well blended sauce.
- Put the scallops back into the pan with the sauce and then pour over pasta. You can also add the pasta into the pan and toss it a couple of times if you prefer doing it this way.
- Serve with a nice crusty bread, small salad and your favorite beverage.
The backstory on this recipe.
Typically the recipes that are prepared for the Foodie Friday posts come from me. I have either cooked it before, came up with it while driving to work or adapted something that a family member makes. This recipe actually comes from Giant Eagle. Last week I was in purchasing food for last weeks post, like I always do and I came across someone offering free samples near the seafood counter. I normally skip these, I know shocking right, but this one intrigued me. The person working the cart was not only friendly but also willing to talk to me about the recipe and how she made it. When I walked in today she recognized me and confirmed the ingredients that I had in my head. A big thank you goes out to the Giant Eagle in Lancaster OH. Thanks!
