Tender whole scallops and shrimp get a quick saute in hot, garlicky olive oil and butter before taking a brief clam juice simmer. Toss with hot pasta, bright strips of sun dried tomatoes and tangy bits of lemon zest for a refreshing entree or appetizer.
Here's a great idea for leftover ham! Stir it into a hearty sauce of cream of mushroom soup, sauteed onions and shredded Cheddar cheese. Add cooked spaghetti, some chopped pimento and parsley for snappy color, then serve piping hot.
