Bay Scallops, Asparagus, and Bacon with Pasta

Today I'll be starting a new series of posts on one of my most favorite topics of all... food. We'll visit the House of Tystad kitchen from time to time for original recipes, tips, and general musings on all that tastes good. To get us started, I've chosen something that was thrown together with what was found in the refrigerator. Honestly, this was not planned in advance, but the results were amazing.

Bay Scallops, Asparagus, and Bacon with Pasta

fresh bay scallops
smoked gouda cheese
cooked bacon
garlic and spices

Saute scallops with garlic and spices. Steam asparagus. Boil pasta. Warm cheese and add milk to create desired consistency; add bacon. Mix scallops and asparagus with cheese sauce. Serve over pasta.


  1. This sounds terrific! And the wine would just top off the meal. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I recommend the Charles Shaw Chardonnay from Trader Joe's. Nothing like a Two-Buck Chuck to complement the meal.
