Sauteed Scallops

Quickly prepare this delicious, healthy meal in less than 20 minutes. It's flavored with just the right amount of garlic and lemon juice.

This dinner is one of the fastest meals ever to make! Literally 15 minutes max. Start boiling water to cook the pasta. While that’s heating, rinse the scallops and pat them dry. While the pasta is cooking, saute the scallops. (I used gluten-free pasta).  As you can see, I also made sauteed spinach too and served all the yumminess together.
