Creamy Seafood Linguine

Carole Floyd from Exmore, Virginia can just about guarantee rave reviews for this creamy seafood dish! “To dress up the meal, I like to serve it with steamed fresh asparagus or a tossed salad and French bread,” she adds. TASTY TIP Carole’s seafood dish also works well with cubes of flounder, salmon or some other tasty fish, she says.

    This is a delicious recipe. I used a pound of shrimp because I didn't have bay scallops. U used yogurt and vermouth and added some sautéed colored bell peppers and mushrooms. Used whole wheat pasta. This is comfort food at its best...really delicious.

    I also added imitatin crab and minced clams to my recipe instead of scallops, only because my husband doesn't care for them It was a hit!!! Also added a dash of cayenne pepper for a little heat. Wonderful!

    I added 2 cans of chopped clams and imitation crab and imitation lobster and had only angel hair pasta. For a novice cook, i found that it was easy to follow and easy to make.
