Seared Scallops with Spinach and Tuscan Beans

DSC01270I’ve recently become obsessed with scallops and these Seared Scallops with Spinach and Tuscan Beans were absolutely delicious. I’ve always loved making spinach with Tuscan beans, and the scallops were the perfect compliment, along with the toasted bread to dip into the sauce.

I used small scallops but this dish would be great with large sea scallops too.

Linguine With Scallops, Brown Butter, and Peas

Linguini with Scallops, Brown Butter and Peas was decadent. I used whole wheat spaghetti instead of linguini, and I also used smaller scallops because I couldn’t find the large ones in the grocery store. The small ones were easy because they were perfectly bite size with the pasta- I used a lot.

I did not add bread crumbs but I did use a lot of grated parmesan cheese.
