Tutto Mare (sounds like Tutu Mar ay)

It's Lent and my husband LOVES fish. I'm not a big fan, but I am getting better at it. lol.

Here's a Tutto Mare recipe I make. (Made my own...) Feel free to tweak it anyway you need to, just please link back here if you are going to use some or all of it. Thanks!

1 bag of Sea Scallops
1 bag of shrimp
2 pkgs of crab "meat" (i use imitation)
1 1/2 sticks of butter or I used Parkay Light
1 cup of Parmesan cheese
1 bottle of Alfredo Sauce (yeah, this time I cheated a bit)
2 TBL of chopped garlic (I use more sometimes)
1 box of Linguine 
1 "jar" of milk ( I used 2% but I know others who use half and half)

My husband hates that I use whole wheat noodles, but I figure that this dish is so high in cals and fat, he needs to eat SOMETHING healthy!*Make sure you have a pot or pan big enough to fit the can of sauce, milk, and seafood.* (or you will end up like me and dirty 3 pans/pots....)

Put 1/2 stick of butter in a pan and 1 TBL of garlic. Throw the thawed Scallops in, the shrimp and the crab "meat". The scallops are what you want to make sure are cooked thoroughly, so when they get a bit pink, you are doing good. Tonight I threw a lid over the pan and let it steam so it would cook faster. After about 6 mins, it should be done. Put it on low and let simmer.

Boil your noodles. When they are done, drain them.  I then put the Alfredo sauce, the Parm cheese and the other TBL of garlic into the pot with the seafood. Fill the jar of sauce up with milk and pour that into the pot as well. Let that boil for a minute or 2. Stir it!

After it boils, take it off the heat and pour (carefully) onto the noodles. We top with Parm cheese or red pepper flakes, and ground black pepper. ENJOY!!
