Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Soak the sun-dried tomatoes; cook the fettuccine

  • In a small bowl, soak the sun-dried tomatoes in very hot tap water until softened, about 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry.

Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil for the fettuccine. Separate the fettuccine so the noodles don’t clump together during cooking. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.

2

Prep and cook the seafood

For scallops:

  • Rinse and drain the scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt.

In a large frying pan over high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the scallops and cook without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

 

For jumbo shrimp:

  • Rinse and drain the shrimp. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until firm and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

 

For halibut: 

  • Pat the halibut dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the halibut and cook until lightly browned on the bottom side, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

3

Cook the pasta

To the pot of boiling water, stir in the fettuccine and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain the fettuccine, reserving ¾ cup [1½ cups] pasta cooking water. Return the fettuccine to the pot; toss with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil to keep the noodles from sticking. While the fettuccine is cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients.

4

Finish the dish

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Measure ¾ cup [1½ cups] milk for the sauce; save the remaining milk for another use.

In the same pan used for the seafood, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant and starting to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. 

Stir in the reserved pasta cooking water and Parmesan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until the Parmesan is melted and incorporated, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the fettuccine, sun-dried tomatoes, milk, spinach, and as many chile flakes as you like and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through and the spinach is just wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the fettuccine to individual plates and top with the seafood. Garnish with as many remaining chile flakes as you like and serve.
