  • 3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Pound Medium-sized Raw Shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • 1 Pound Frozen Bay Scallops (thawed and drained)
  • 1 (10 ounce) Can Baby Clams (Drained--Juice Reserved)
  • 8 Ounces Fresh Button Mushrooms (sliced or quartered)
  • 6 Cloves Garlic (pressed or finely minced)
  • 1 Bunch Green Onions, Halved lengthwise, then cut on the bias into 2" long strips
  • 1 Pint Cherry or Grape Tomatoes Halved
  • 1 (14 ounce) Can Artichoke Hearts (quartered)
  • 4.5 Ounces Fresh Baby Spinach (1/2 of a 9 oz. bag), coarsely chopped
  • 1 Cup Dry White Wine
  • Juice of 1-1/2 Lemons
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons Fresh Thyme Leaves (minced) or 1-1/2 teaspoons dried
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Oregano Leaves (minced) or 1 teaspoon dried
  • Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 (13.25 oz) Box Dreamfield's Angel Hair Pasta (reduced carb pasta)
  • 1 (6 oz) Bag Shredded Asiago Cheese (or more to taste--I like more)
  • 1/3 Cup Minced Italian Parsley


  1. In a 2-cup glass measuring cup, combine the white wine, lemon juice, reserved clam juice, and cornstarch. Set aside.

  2. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.

  3. Into a large deep sauté pan or dutch oven, sauté the mushrooms in olive oil over medium-high heat until mushrooms give up most of their liquid.

  4. Add shrimp, scallops, clams, and garlic and sauté just a couple minutes until shrimp begin to turn pink.

  5. Add onions, artichoke hearts, tomatoes, thyme, oregano, salt, and pepper, and red pepper flakes. Sauté a couple more minutes until onions begin to soften.

  6. At this point drop your pasta into the boiling water. It only takes 5 minutes.

  7. Stir the wine mixture and add to the sauté. Bring to a boil, and cook until sauce is just slightly thickened (about 2 minutes). Shut off the heat, and stir in the chopped spinach and half of the Asiago Cheese.

  8. Drain the pasta and return to the pot. Stir in the sauté mixture to completely coat noodles with the sauce. Add most of the minced parsley, reserving just a little for garnish.

  9. Divide seafood pasta among 6 shallow pasta bowls. Garnish with remaining Asiago cheese and parsley.
