    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Olive oil 2 teaspoons
    Shallots, finely chopped 2 tablespoons
    Garlic clove, minced 1
    Fettuccini (or other pasta) 6 ounces
    White wine ½ cup
    Sea scallops ½ pound
    Dried basil 1 teaspoon
    Medium tomato, diced 1
    Baby spinach, packed 2 cups
    Salt ¼ teaspoon
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    1. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and garlic, and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to boil and cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and oil.
    3. Reduce skillet heat to medium and add wine. Cook until wine is reduced by half, 3-4 minutes, and then add scallops. Sauté until cooked through, about 5-6 minutes. Add basil and tomatoes, and sauté another 1-2 minutes.
    4. Reduce heat to low and add spinach to skillet. Stir until just wilted, 1-2 minutes, and then season with salt and pepper. Mix with the drained pasta and serve.
