*Before grating the zest, be sure to wash the outside of the lemon with warm water, a little soap then rinse thoroughly and dry with a towel. Citrus fruits are often handled by other customers and employees at the grocery store before you purchase it so washing the rind first will remove any surface dirt.

1. Cook pasta according to package instructions.

3. Add scallops and cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Set aside and cover to keep warm.
