This is not your ordinary weeknight pasta. It’s a special occasion pasta. This is the type of pasta you make for someone and they immediately pull out their phones to start taking pictures. Seafood Pasta is the perfect way to impress your friends and family and its actually really easily! 

Our seafood of choice is scallops and shrimp because of their similar cook times, but the recipe could be easily adapted for clams, mussels, lobster, or crab. The sauce is a mixture of milk, chicken broth (sub in vegetable broth if you don’t eat meat), and Parmesan. No roux necessary, just a light cream sauce that doesn’t overpower the seafood.

If this triggered your love for the combination of pasta and seafood you must try this Seafood Lasagna or this zesty Shrimp Boil Pasta
