Pasta Primavera with Seared Scallops

Pasta Primavera with Seared Scallops

Scallops are so light and flavorful, they make the perfect addition to light fare like pasta primavera. We used a simple roasted garlic olive oil to accompany the fresh vegetables.


  • 1 pound sea scallops
  • 1 small yellow squash, diced
  • 1 cup broccoli, chopped
  • 5-6 asparagus spears, chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped
  • 1 habanero pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 5 ounces spaghetti noodles, prepared
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup roasted garlic olive oil
  • Red pepper seasoning

Cooking Directions

  • Heat a large sauté pan to medium heat.
  • Slice the sea scallops in half lengthwise and season with chili pepper.
  • Add a small bit of oil the heated saute pan and add vegetables. Saute about 5 minutes, or until vegetables begin to soften. Add vegetables to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add a bit more oil to the saute pan and add sea scallops. Sear about 1 minute per side, or until scallops are cooked through the centers. Add to mixing bowl.
  • Add prepared noodles and roasted garlic olive oil to the mixing bowl.
  • Toss to combine and serve! If you'd like, you can easily add more oil.
