Creamy Parmesan Chicken and Scallop Pasta

I like to use penne pasta for this dish, however you could use fettuccine too. 

Drizzle with fresh lemon juice and enjoy!

You don’t have to wait for only a special occasion for this dish, if you have a seafood lover in your life they are sure to enjoy this anytime of the year. 

You will want to start by chopping your onion and then mincing your garlic, saute it in a pan and then placing on the side.

Next saute the chicken pieces, and scallops separately in a little butter then set aside.

Before placing everything back in the saucepan to merge together with some heavy cream, chopped yellow pepper, parsley, salt and pepper and fresh parmesan cheese.

Right before serving squeeze some lemon over top and serve hot directly from the pan.

Once you try this simple recipe, you will be hooked, just be careful to not overcook the scallops or it they will become rubbery.

You are going to want to cook it on medium low for a 3 minutes on each side, then remove it immediately from the heat and set aside before tossing back for the last minute with everything else before serving!
