Seared Scallop Pasta with Bacon and Broccoli sounds like a lot.
Well, it is.
In fact, this is one of those scallop recipes that appeals to those who may not even like the bivalve, since there is so much else going on in the pot. Succulent, sweet seared scallops mingle with garlic, onion, and a splash of white wine. Broccoli joins the skillet until it’s bright green and crisp-tender, then the whole thing gets tossed with al dente pasta, salted butter, and lots of crispy bacon.
Scallop and bacon recipes— that perfect combination of mild and tender with meaty and crisp— are not meant to be subtle. Speckled with red and green and studded with caramelized bits of seafood, scallop bacon pasta offers plenty of intrigue in each bite.
Which in this case, is just the right amount.
