Creamy Seafood Linguine

Happy November everyone its been a few days since i posted a recipe I'm just hoping this month goes by fast deployment is coming to a end finally! I made this dish tonight and as i was making it i thought it was going to a total flop the sauce didn't come out the colour i was hoping but i sat down and took a bite its amazing i haven't had scallops in forever i actually found some in the frozen food aisle, Being from FL I'm used to fresh seafood but that will have to do for now. This dish is meant to be low calorie since all of those creamy seafood dishes are crazy high in calories.

  1. Oooh, wow, that looks amazing! I love seafood, but for some reason, I'm scared to try cooking it myself. This looks so easy, though! Thanks <3
