    • Saute the shallots, garlic and red pepper flakes for 3 minutes, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon.
    • Heat a saute pan with a couple of tablespoons of butter.

    • Increase the heat then add the crushed tomatoes and bring to a steady simmer. Season with salt and pepper.

    • Add the shrimp and the scallops and cook until the shrimp just turn pink.
    • Toss in the parsley and basil. Check the seasonings and adjust if necessary.
    • Add a couple of spoonfuls of the sauce to the linguine and serve in bowls with the seafood on top and the crusty bread on the side to mop up all the flavor in the sauce.
