Scallops & Shrimp In Herb and Garlic Butter, With Penne Rigate And Pangrattato

Pangrattato  you ask ? Don’ t worry, we are just talking about sautéed breadcrumbs here, nothing complicated, but oh so good.
Most cuisines which use pasta also use pangrattato in one form or another : bread crumbs sautéed in butter, in olive oil, in schmalz or just dry toasted, seasoned with anything from salt and pepper to garlic, herbs cheese, nutmeg or whatever else is traditional in your area of the woods or whatever tickles your fancy. The main task for the bread crumbs is to add texture to your pasta. And if you can add flavor on top of that, so much the better.
Sometimes, all I want for a great meal is just perfectly cooked pasta with lot’s of tasty pangrattato and a bit of grated cheese on top. Perfection for pasta lovers, right there. But today, I made a dish with even more pizzazz by adding sautéed shrimp and scallops in herb butter to an already sexy dish. Aaahhhh,  Life is Good 🙂

  1. Well now I know what’s for dinner! Thanks for this quick and easy idea. I always check your blog, but since my schedule is very hectic I usually look for the easier recipes and ones with things in my pantry. Save the other fantastic ones for when I have more time, Ha Ha. Hope all is well and you are settled in your new place. Fan as always, Edwina
