  • 4 oz Linguini
  • 2 Cups Broccoli Chopped
  • 1 Cup Tomatoes Chopped
  • 2 Tsp Olive oil
  • 4 Sea Scallops
  • 4 Tbsp Butter Unsalted
  • 4 Tbsp Mizritha cheese Grated
  • 1/4 Tsp Pepper


  • Bring pot of water to boil and add linguini.  Allow to cook until al dente, about 4 minutes.  Drain and add to serving bowl.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, cook broccoli for 1 minute until just tender and remove from microwave and add tomatoes.
