Scallops and Bacon with Alfredo Pasta and Peas

Ingredients

1 pound Scallops- dry well and season both sides with salt and pepper
1/2 pound bacon
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup frozen peas
1 container of your favorite Alfredo Sauce
one container of pasta- I used fresh Angel Hair (from the fridge section)
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese

Directions

Boil water and cook pasta.

Cook your bacon off in a cast iron skillet. Drain on paper towels and tent with aluminum foil. Chop when it has cooled off a bit.

Turn down heat add your onions and garlic for about 5 minutes. Move your onions and garlic toward the edges and add in your scallops. Cook on medium high heat for 2 minutes per side. Do not overcook!!!

Take out the scallops and add in your frozen peas, butter, sauce, and cheese. Mix well. Add in your pasta. If too thick, add in a bit of pasta water. Top with bacon and scallops!

I wasn’t sure how the girls would like the scallops, but they gobbled them up!
