    Tallarines Con Conchitas Al Aji (Noodles with Shells and Aji Sauce)

    This is a common dish in the coastal regions of Peru where fresh shells, or pink and white scallops, are readily available. An excellent way to give a unique touch to everyday noodles.

  • 8 ounces dry noodles, such as shells,fettuccine, or egg noodles
  • 1 cup white sauce* See below.
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh ajis (or substitute serranos or jalapenos)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 dozen scallops, in the shell
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • Preheat an oven to 400 degrees. Cook the noodles in boiling water until done, drain and place in an ovenproof serving dish. Heat the white sauce and add the chiles, orange juice and cheese, and mix well. Pour the sauce over the noodles, toss to coat, and add the scallops. Spread the mayonnaise over the top of the casserole and bake for 10 minutes.
