This recipe comes from Pasta Recipes which is one of the eGroups. This recipe was posted by Mimi Hiller who also runs another group for Appetizers.


Jalapeno Pasta:
2 c All-Purpose Flour
3/4 c Semolina flour
5 lg Eggs
1/4 c  Milk
2 ts Jalapenos; pureed
1 ea Pinch salt

Scallop Sauce:
2 tb Olive Oil
2 ea Garlic cloves;mashed-minced
2 lb Sea scallops; cleaned
1 tb Fresh cilantro; minced
1 ts Dried tarragon
1 1/2 c  Dry white wine


Jalapeno Pasta: In a large mixing bowl, place all of the ingredients and knead them with an electric mixer, (or use a dough hook), for 10 minutes, or until a soft dough is formed. On a flat, floured surface, roll out the dough so that is is 1/8 inch thick. Cut the dough lengthwise into 1/4 inch wide strips. Hang the strips over a wooden rod, like a broom handle, for 2 hours (minimum) so that they dry. Cook the pasta al dente and drain it. Serve it with the Scallop Sauce on top.

Scallop Sauce: In a large skillet place the olive oil and heat it on medium high until it's hot. Add the garlic and saute it for 45 seconds, or until it begins to turn brown. Add the sea scallops and cook them on 1 side for 1 minute. Remove the scallops and place them on a warm plate. To the skillet add the cilantro, tarragon and white wine. Cook the ingredients for 5 minutes, or until the sauce is reduced by half. Add the scallops (place the uncooked sides down in the pan) and cook them for 4 minutes.
