Lemon Pasta with Bay Scallops

Wow that was good!

1/2 box spaghetti or linguini or angel hair pasta, boiled until done & drained thoroughly
2 T butter
2 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 bag bay scallops, thawed and let drain fully on paper towel
Juice from one lemon
Chopped flat leaf parsley
Grated parmesan
Salt/pepper to taste

In a skillet, put a little non-stick spray or canola oil and on high heat, sear the scallops. Drain fully if water is produced from the scallops.
After a minute or two, add in butter, oil, garlic, lemon juice and cooked pasta. Toss thoroughly and let cook in the pan on high heat for 2-4 minutes.
Garnish with chopped flat leaf parsley and grated parmesan cheese.
