Originally Posted May 24, 2007 – After our cruise last month, I have been craving scallops like crazy because of the amazing scallop dishes that we had. So even though I don’t have access to the best or freshest scallops, I just had to go back into the archives and make this Key West Penne again. The kids loved the pasta, and my husband and I loved the seafood. I love that this recipe doesn’t have a lot of ingredients, but it is definitely full of flavor. It’s a great way to have a restaurant worthy meal at home! I did change it this time and I did leave out the kalamata olives that were in the original recipe – I definite think that was a great move. This is a meal that I know we will enjoy again!

Seriously – what’s not to like?? Sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts, throw in some shrimp and scallops, all nestled in a bed of pasta and cream sauce?? This is an ultimate comfort dish. Another really fast dish, too. There’s not a whole lot to say about this – it was delicious!! I did make a few adjustments to the original recipe, but they are all noted below. The only thing I would change next time would be to not add the kalamata olives. I think they were too bold of a taste to pair with the seafood. I can’t wait for lunch today to eat some as leftovers!!

Restaurant quality food at home! This Key West Penne is filled with shrimp, scallops, sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts in a light cream sauce - this is a pasta dish fit for a special occasion!
Serves: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 8 oz penne pasta
  • 1 (7.5 oz) jar marinated artichoke hearts
  • 1 (7 to 8 oz) jar sun-dried tomatoes, packed in oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 12 oz scallops
  • ½ lb shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • chopped parsley
Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt generously. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, drain the artichoke hearts and roughly chop. Drain the sun-dried tomatoes, reserving 1 tablespoon of the oil. Slice the tomatoes.
  3. Pour the reserved tablespoon of oil into a large skillet and place over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Place the scallops in the pan and cook for a minute, then add the shrimp. Stir the seafood, cooking for a minute or two, then add the artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes. Continue to cook until the shrimp and scallops are cooked, a couple minutes.
  4. Pour the cream into the pan, then sprinkle with the cheese. Stir to combine, then add in the pasta and stir to coat the pasta. Serve topped with chopped parsley.

    Delicious! I wish shrimp and scallops were cheap enough over there that we could buy 1/2 pound of each without needing to take out a second mortgage!
    Aside from all that, it looks beautiful!

  2. Kristen says:

    I agree with you. What’s not to like? That looks fantastic!

    HAHAHAHAAA!!! You made me think I lost a day somehow this week!!!

    I thought.. My God, didn’t I just see the shrimp caesar? How’d I miss FOUR posts. I hadda go back to realize you posted them all together. duh.

    I think they all look amazing – seriously. I’ve made my list for the week and I WILL be making the Key West Penne if I can find reasonably price scallops. I WILL be making the BLT/egg salad sammiches as my hubby will for sure love both you and I for it. I WILL be making the brownies! And I WILL try those tacos – they look and sound fabulous.

    It’s hard to find fresh seafood here, so I usually resort to the frozen seafood at Costco. Not as good as fresh, but it still tastes good for a reasonable price!

    Wow what a great pasta! You should send this to Ruth at Once Upon a Feast for her Presto Pasta night.

  6. Kirsten says:

    Looks great!

    Totally agree re: the olives…I think you have SOOO many delicious things going on in there the olives aren’t really needed. Instead, they can be eaten as an appetizer while making the Key West penne. :)

    Delicious!!
