Improv Tuscan Spaghetti and Scallop Dinner

Some days you are just tired of the same old same old, so you look at what you got and see what you can put together without having to step out and get something. Just before the lockdown lifted here in California I was shopping like most people online and saw a special  (meaning getting ready to go bad) on scallops at Whole Foods. Decided to get half a pound and figure it out later. Well that evening hubby being part Italian voted Italian instead of Asian inspired. So got to looking on the internet and found a couple of recipes that looked promising but we were missing most of the key ingredients like sun-dried tomatoes or bacon or pancetta. So leftover salami it was and the last survivors on our arugula plant in our backyard instead of spinach. The half-eaten tomato etc. I wouldn’t have bothered typing the recipe up if it hadn’t turned out to so good.
