Seafood Pasta with Roasted Veggies

This is seriously the best seafood pasta recipe! It includes shrimp, scallops, roasted veggies, and a roasted garlic cheese sauce. DROOL.

You guys. I majorly rushed through this photo shoot because I was SO excited to dive head first into this pasta. And once I did, I instantly fell in love.

Seafood Pasta with Roasted Veggies basically combines everything I love: roasted veggies, scallops, shrimp, garlic and CHEESE. I love roasting the vegetables in the oven before tossing them in the salad because I think it gives them more flavor.

The ingredients in this recipe are super simple, but it definitely doesn’t lack in flavor.

The sauce is made of roasted garlic, olive oil, fresh basil and Manchego cheese. That’s it!! Sounds like a simple list, but the pasta turns out so simple yet delicious.

Of course, the real star of the show is the seafood in this seafood pasta recipe. I’ve always been the biggest fan of scallops. In college, my dad bought me a huge bag of frozen scallops from Costco. I would thaw and sear them in our tiny apartment, and my roommate HATED it because of the smell.

I can’t really say I blame her – cooking seafood never smells amazing. But I crack a window, light a candle, and do it anyways because it’s just so dang delicious.

How to Make Seafood Pasta

The trick to how this dish starts is a cast iron skillet. I’ve said before that I’m a firm believer that everyone needs one, and it’s especially important to make scallops with a crispy golden crust. SO GOOD.

I love roasting the vegetables ahead of time so this dish comes together even quicker.

If your sauce isn’t quite thin enough, I recommend saving a bit of pasta water to thin it out.

How to Customize Seafood Pasta

You can use any seafood you want: shrimp, scallops, salmon, mussels, clams, lobster … mix it up or just choose one.

Vegetables too: you can choose any vegetables you want! I definitely recommend keeping the tomatoes and the roasted garlic, but any other vegetables are fair game: I think eggplant and peppers would pair nicely.

If you don’t have Manchego cheese, I’ve made this recipe with Parmesan Reggiano and it’s also delicious.

Next time you need a fancy and delicious dinner recipe, give this Seafood Pasta with Roasted Veggies a try. It really is the best seafood pasta I’ve ever had (right up there with squid ink pasta in Positano, Italy … haha).
