Tropical Acres Shrimp & Scallops in Pink Scampi Sauce

6 TB. butter
4 cloves garlic, chopped
3 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
2 TB. chopped fresh parsley
2 TB. chopped fresh basil
1 lb. scallops
3/4 lb. medium shrimp
1 can black olives, drained and sliced
1 cup sliced mushrooms

Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
8 oz. dry angel-hair pasta, cooked al dente

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add garlic; saute 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, parsley and basil; bring to a simmer and cook 5 minutes. Turn heat to medium high and add scallops and shrimp. Cook, stirring, until scallops are opaque throughout, 3 to 5 minutes. Add olives, mushrooms and wine. Simmer until mushrooms are tender about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 2 TB. Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve immediately over pasta. Pass more cheese, if desired. Makes 4 servings.
