A long days work that leaves you with zero energy calls for one thing, quick, easy and delicious pasta.  We are big seafood eaters in my household (probably something to do with being Greek) and the beauty of seafood is that it cooks in a matter of minutes.  This recipe is packed with lots of different flavours but I wouldn't recommend making it for a date, as delicious as it is, the garlic will have him running for the hills!  P.s.  Usually I would add chilli flakes at the same point I add the garlic however the mother doesn't like spice so I threw a handful in my bowl right at the end.

200g fresh egg linguine
50g butter
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic crushed
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 handful torn basil
1 large handful spinach
1 pack raw prawns
1 pack raw scallops

Heat the olive oile in a large saucepan.
Add the butter, once melted and bubbling, add the two cloves of crushed garlic and lemon zest.
In another large saucepan bring salted water to the boil, add the pasta and cook on a low heat.
Add the seafood to the butter along with salt and pepper until the seafood has coloured.
Add the torn basil and spinach and mix well.
Drain the pasta and add this to the saucepan with the seafood.  Stir together and serve immediately.  
Top with grated fresh parmesan and serve with a hunk or buttery garlic bread.
