Step 1

Cook the Barilla® pasta for half the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent from sticking.

Store in zip lock bags or sealed plastic container; refrigerate and use within several hours.

Step 2

Sauté the onions and garlic in the oil until translucent. Add the tomatoes, cream, wine, and tomato juice and let simmer for 4 to 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and refrigerate until needed.

Step 3

For each serving, to order: Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a pan and add 2 oz. asparagus, 1 oz. shrimp, and 1 oz. scallops. Sauté briefly, until the shrimp are half cooked. Add 5 oz. of the sauce, 1 cup pasta, and a generous ¼ cup of mixed parsley, cilantro, and basil. Bring just to a simmer and taste for seasoning. Plate and top with grated Parmesan.
