Seafood Pasta Delight

My friends thought it was a little strange that I packed a wok when I came to visit them. That was, until I prepared this wonderful shrimp and scallop pasta. It makes supper with those I care about a special occasion now. —Debbie Campbell, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

    Prepared this using only scallops (1 1/2 lbs. ). Substituted Splenda for the sugar and used egg noodles. Delish!
