Seafood Pasta

This is a quick and easy recipe that is not only delicious, but impressive.  We ventured to Whole Foods the other day and decided to spend my whole paycheck and just get all of the yummy goodies. We grabbed things on a whim and they turned out amazing. I may just make this again once Nic leaves so I can have all the leftovers to myself.

1 medium lobster tail
1/4 lb deveened shimp
1/4 lb scallops
1/2 red pepper
1/4 lb broccoli
Pasta of your choice
Olive Oil
3 Cheese Italian Blend
Alfredo Sauce

We went the lazy route with our alfredo sauce and used something from a jar. I know there are a ton of really fantastic alfredo sauce recipes, but, we just weren't feeling it today.

Bring water to a rolling boil. Pour 1/2 tablespoon of garlic powder into water, and add pasta. Cook as you normally would. Cut shrimp and scallops into bite sized pieces. Take lobster meat out of shell and also cut into bite sized pieces.
Heat a generous amount of butter in a skillet, once melted add the lobster. Cook for approximately 1 minute and then add the shrimp and scallops. Stirring, cook for 1-2 minutes.  Remove placing in a bowl and covering to keep warm.  Add pepper and broccoli florets
