Easy, quick and creamy. Shrimp and scallops are sauteed and served on a bed of orecchiette pasta with a yummy sauce. The sauce can be used for a variety of things. If a tomboy like me can invent this dish, a guy can cook it!

  • Bring white wine and milk to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk in sour cream and Parmesan cheese, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in cilantro.

  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and scallops, and cook until the shrimp begin to firm and turn pink. Stir in the yellow and orange peppers, season with Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper; continue cooking until peppers are tender.

  • To serve, place cooked pasta into a serving bowl, top with seafood mixture, and pour sauce overtop.
