Shellfish is the star in the traditional Italian pasta dish linguine ai frutti di mare. Our recipe calls for five varieties: clams, mussels, scallops, shrimp, and squid.
The pan juices that are released from baking the scallops mix with creme fraiche and white wine to create a delicious garlicky sauce. Serve this gratin with crusty bread for dipping, or for a heartier dish, serve over thin spaghetti tossed in olive oil.
