1. Creamy Parmesan Risotto with Seared Scallops

A creamy and filling meal is basically defined by pasta! This risotto dish with scallops is the perfect start for someone just getting into seafood. Scallops aren’t too fishy and have a texture consistent with any other meat you may add to a pasta dish.

The only thing better than pasta is stuffed pasta. And this ravioli is taken to yet another level with the added shrimp and fresh green peas.
