Spicy Shrimp And Scallop Alfredo
A wonderful meal for a romantic evening. The creamy sauce and spice make this a keeper."Delicious - my kids particularly loved it. I used small scallops (cheaper) and the suggestion from another reviewer (jamesm786). I added 1 cup of white wine 2 min after adding 3oz of cream. Thanks for sharing...!" - Wariar
