Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta for 9 minutes according to the package instruction.

  4. Increase heat to medium, add shrimp and scallops, cook until the seafood turns from translucent to opaque, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in swiss cheese and parmesan cheese until it’s melted and blended well.
  6. Drain the pasta, divide into 6 even portions and place into serving bowls.
  7. Pour equal amount of the seafood sauce on the pasta in each serving bowl. Serve!
