My 2 children love pasta and any kind of pasta. One of their favorite pasta is seafood pasta with scallops. We used to order this seafood pasta from a restuarant.
Since they like pasta, i will cook pasta with different kinds of ingredients. This is one of the way to cook this.
2 - 4 fresh scallops/frozen scallops
2 big prawns -remove shell and dirt
3-4 pcs swiss brown - sliced/ some shimeji mushrooms
1/4 carrots -sliced
1 clove of garlic - chopped
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 tbsp oyster sauce / black pepper sauce
