Place the scallops and shrimp back into the pan and gently simmer for about 7 to 8 minutes. Make sure not to overcook the shrimps.
Step 3: In the meantime, cook the pappardelle pasta in another pot following the package directions. Drain when done and add to the sauce. Toss well.
Step 4: Serve the seafood pappardelle right away garnished with some flat-leaf parsley. Enjoy!
