Main Course - Linguini With Scallops
Scallops are a famous food from under the sea, or on the rocks on the shore, that is enjoyed by many people of many different cultures. It is now famous at many seaside resturaunts when you go on vacation. It may seem hard to get that resuraunt quality type of cooking out of your food in a resuraunt, but it really isn't.
