I love a good flavorful pasta and this is a perfect date night dish for two. Shrimp and scallops nestled in a spicy and creamy sauce and cheese tortellini..SO good.

How to Make Seafood Vesuvius

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large saucepan, bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Add 1 tbsp of the olive oil to the boiling water. Stir frequently to prevent pasta from sticking together.
  2. Reduce heat and boil pasta gently for 7-9 minutes or until tortellini are tender. Drain. Return pasta to pan along with 1 tbsp of the butter. Stir. Cover and keep warm.
  3. While pasta is cooking, combine Marinara Sauce and next five ingredients (Alfredo sauce, roasted red peppers, cayenne and Jalapeno slices) in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth.
    Pour sauce into a small saucepan and heat gently, stirring often to prevent burning.
  4. Melt remaining butter in a medium skillet over high heat. Place scallops into skillet. Add Shrimp. Saute Scallops and raw shrimp in butter 1-2 minutes. Turn Scallops over and cook another one in a half minutes. Check for done ness and remove scallops if opaque in center. Add chopped zucchini and yellow squash and cook 1-2 minutes more or until shrimp are almost cooked through. Pour sauce over shrimp and vegetables, Nestle scallops in sauce and heat through just until hot – should take less than a minute.
  5. Divide pasta evenly between two bowls. Top with Seafood sauce and sprinkle with fresh basil. Serve immediately.
