How to Make Creamy Sun Dried Tomato & Spinach Seafood Pasta

1. Cook Pasta – bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook linguine or spaghetti pasta to al dente according to package instructions, then drain and set aside.

2. Season Seafood – thoroughly pat dry the shrimp and scallops with a paper towel then generously season with italian seasoning, garlic powder, paprika, salt, black pepper and 1 tbsp olive oil.

3. Cook & Set Aside Seafood – heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil and cook shrimp until cooked through and pink, remove from skillet and transfer to a bowl; set aside. Then, sear the scallops for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown, remove from skillet, transfer to a bowl; set aside.

TSS Tip – Make sure your seafood is well seasoned as this is what flavours the entire dish!

4. Saute Onions & Sun Dried Tomatoes – add an additional drizzle of olive oil and butter to the skillet and saute garlic until softened and fragrant, then add sun dried tomatoes.

5. Make the Creamy Pasta Sauce – Deglaze the skillet with dry white wine or chicken stock and scrape up any brown bits. Reduce the wine for 1 minute. Add lemon juice, cooking or heavy cream and bring to a slight simmer, then add parmesan cheese, mixing until well combined. Add spinach and stir to combine until wilted.

6. Add Pasta & Return Shrimp – transfer the cooked pasta to the skillet and heat for about 30 seconds, just to combine and let the pasta soak up the sauce. Nestle the shrimp and scallops back into the skillet.

7. Garnish & Serve – Garnish with fresh parsley, parmesan cheese and lemon wedges to serve.

What Type of White Wine to Use

Use a good quality dry white wine. For this recipe I used a Pinot Grigio, however Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay will work as well. You can sub chicken broth or other broths in this recipe, however the white wine adds a unique flavour to the sauce.

Creamy Sun Dried Tomato & Spinach Seafood Pasta Recipe Tips

  • Make sure you use a skillet or pot large enough to fit all your ingredients.
  • You can use shrimp with tails on or off, as well as sub for your preferred type of seafood
  • Taste test your sauce, and adjust accordingly – adding more salt or pepper, parmesan cheese, lemon juice as desired.
  • Gradually transfer the cooked al dente pasta to the skillet and toss, rather than adding all at once.

How to Store Creamy Sun Dried Tomato & Spinach Seafood Pasta

Allow the pasta to cool completely before storing. When cooled, transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

How to Reheat Creamy Sun Dried Tomato & Spinach Seafood Pasta on Stovetop

In a wide enough skillet or saucepan, reheat leftover pasta over low to medium heat until completely warmed through (around 6-8 minutes). You can add about 1-2 tbsp of chicken stock or water to loosen up the sauce if too thick while reheating.

How to Reheat Creamy Sun Dried Tomato & Spinach Seafood Pasta in Microwave

If you opt to reheat in a microwave, do so by transferring pasta to a microwave safe container then covering and heating in 30-second intervals, tossing in-between until heated through.
