#18 ~ Shrimp and Scallop Pasta Salad

Summer is officially here! After the Dragon Boat Festival yesterday, after eating those heavy sticky rice, it's time to lighten up my meal a bit. I have here left-over penne from my previous Baked Penne with Spinach, few shrimps and scallops and mix them with romaine lettuce. Additional beef wrapped in tortilla, plus refreshing watermelon for dessert.

1 cup cooked penne
few shrimps and scallops, cooked in salt
1 bundle romaine lettuce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
grated cheese (I used Parmesan)
pine nuts
fresh basil (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
* Toss all the ingredients, chill for at least 30 minutes.

The cheese tortilla flavor with peppered beef and cheese.

One last treat, here's the red sweet watermelon :)


  1. The watermelon appeals most, but it's not watermelon weather here at the moment.

  2. love your pics and the dishes sound perfect for summer come see what I shared at

  3. I could use a slice of that watermelon right now!


    Yellow or red—which shall it be?
    Red for you and yellow for me?

    Perhaps you’d rather have yellow instead—
    Which leaves me, of course, with handfuls of red!

    Whichever hue you decide to choose,
    I’ll take the other—no one will lose!
