Scalloped Fettuccini

Scalloped Fettucini AlfredoLike I mentioned last Friday, I’m a big fan of cheese and carbs.  Pasta is my all time favorite comfort food. Yum! Going back to work has been tough and called for some comfort food that I can easily & quickly whip up so all of my extra time is spent snuggling with my little boy.  This might become a new staple in our house!
Ingredients
1 lb fettuccine noodles
1 stick unsalted butter
1 cup heavy cream
salt & pepper, to taste
2 cups grated parmesan cheese
coconut oil
1 lb scallops
Italian parsley, to garnish

Directions
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.  Over warm heat, melt together butter and cream.  Add cheese and stir as it melts, then add salt & pepper to taste.  Reduce heat to low.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a skillet on low-medium heat.  Add in scallops and brown on both sides for about a minute and a half.  It will not take long to cook the scallops.  If you leave them on the heat too long they will end up chewy (like shrimp).  So pay very close attention.
  3. When the scallops are done add them and the cooked pasted to the alfredo sauce and mix. 
  4. Dish up your pasta and garnish with parsley.
  5. Enjoy!
Hope you enjoy this as much as we do!
Happy Monday!

This sounds delish! I've been a fan of scallops when I've had them in the past, but I've never cooked them before. I might need to try!
