  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil, and cook the linguine 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a skillet over high heat, and cook and stir the chorizo sausage 2-3 minutes, until evenly browned. Set aside the sausage, and wipe the skillet. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil, and toss in the scallops. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne, and cook and stir about 3 minutes, until opaque and lightly browned. Set aside. Wipe the skillet, and heat another 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium heat. Cook and stir the green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and yellow bell pepper until tender. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  3. Heat the remaining olive oil in the skillet over medium high heat, and cook and stir the garlic until tender. Pour in the wine, and bring to a boil. Cook until most of the wine has been reduced, and scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Mix in the clam juice, bring to a boil, and cook until reduced by about 1/2. Return the chorizo, scallops, and peppers to the skillet, and toss until coated. Serve over the cooked linguine.

Not much flavour other than the flavour of chorizo. Seems like a stir-fry dumped on pasta.

Great recipe! I found using the ingredient search in an attempt to not waste food in the fridge. I used large sea scallops and only seared them in the rendered fat from the sausage (I didn't wip...

Good flavor, but there was not enough sauce for the pound of pasta. I used a jar of white clam sauce instead of the cup of clam broth, but would use two or three jars next time. The more sauce...

This was fabulous! I couldn't give it 5 stars (because I changed a few things) but it is certainly worth 5. I do have to agree that there isn't enough sauce for the amount of pasta. I would defi...

I'd give it a 5 except I changed a few things. The first time I made this, I did exactly as the recipe called to do and was disappointed because the pasta ended up being too dry for us. Also the...

OUTSTANDING !!! And very simple, slightly time consuming. I used shrimp instead of scallops which shortened the time considerably....WILL ABSOLUTELY MAKE AGAIN!

Hmm, not sure about this one. I didn't like it at all - the flavors just didn't work for me. So, the 3 stars is Husband's grade. The chorizo absolutely floored me - the chorizo I've had in the p...

Fantastic! I used angel hair pasta instead and cooked the scallops a touch longer but otherwist perfect. Thank you GR this is a new favorite.
