Shrimp and Scallops Linguini Recipe with White Wine Sauce

Shrimp and Scallops Linguini Recipe

I have a short list of comfort foods and about 80% of that list involves pasta. Which is funny because except for the occasional pan of sphagetti we rarely ate it growing up, my dad was a steak and potatoes kind of guy. Anyhow, for one reason or another I can’t get enough but one of my favorites is Shrimp and Scallops Linguini. Here is great version Shrimp and Scallops Linguini Recipe from my go to recipe source Food Network.
