Creamy & Spicy Shrimp Scallop Pasta

Hubby suggested I name this pasta "First Date Pasta".  He says it's an excellent choice to make for someone that you are hoping to impress.  

  • 1 pound pasta
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1/3 cup green onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons cajun seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon minced chipotle (canned in adobo sauce)
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup scallops
  • 1 pound of shrimp
  • 1/4 cup fresh sliced or grated parmesan cheese (sorry, the cheese in the green can won't work here)  * Sprinkle the cheese on once your meal is plated.

In a saucepan, saute on low/medium:  butter, garlic, green pepper, green onion, red onion, cajun seasonings & chipotle until butter is melted.  Add shrimp and scallops.

Boil water and cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and place in a large serving bowl.

Add cream cheese to saucepan.  Stir until melted.  Add heavy whipping cream & saute on low until heated.  Pour over pasta and serve.
