Teresa's 10-Minute Seafood Pasta

“I *invented* this dish for my boyfriend-it's now his absolute favorite meal! I love it because it is incredibly fast, easy, and delicious! Recipe can easily double by using 1/2 lb of each type of seafood and using 2 cans of diced tomatoes. Slightly increase amount of oil/butter used to saute seafood if doubling. Recipe can easily be altered to suit your personal seafood tastes. Use all shrimp or all scallops (use 1/2 lb total weight for 2 servings, or 1 lb total weight for 4 servings).”
