Sea Scallops Florentine Fettuccini with Mushrooms and Tomatoes

Serving Size: 4

The sauce in this Sea Scallops Florentine Fettuccini with Mushrooms and Tomatoes is everything!  It literally consists of chicken stock and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.  After sautéing your veggies, you let all that goodness simmer lightly in a buttery sauce for a really creamy taste.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound of sea scallops
  • 1 Pound of cooked fettuccini noodles
  • 0.33 cup of I Can’t Believe It’s Not butter + 2 tablespoons
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 0.5 small diced shallot
  • 4 cloves of finely minced garlic
  • 2 cup of sliced baby Portobello mushrooms
  • 2 yellow tomatoes cut into 8 wedges
  • 2 red tomatoes cut into 8 wedges
  • 2 cup of packed baby spinach
  • kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Season the scallops on all sides with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large sauté pan on high heat, add in 1 tablespoon of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter until melted and add in the seasoned scallops and sear for 4 minutes or until golden brown. Once they are caramelized on the bottom, flip them over and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. Remove them from the pan once they are cooked and set aside. Scallops should be firm.
  3. In the same pan add in 1 tablespoon of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter until melted and toss in the mushrooms are caramelize. 
  4. Once they are brown add in the shallots and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. At this point add in the tomatoes and sauté for another minute.
  5. Next, add in the chicken stock and remaining I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and simmer in low heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Finish by adding in the spinach, cooked fettuccini, salt and pepper and toss together until combined. Top off with the seared scallops. Serve hot.
