   NOTES:
   
   *  I serve this over fettucini (1 1/2 lbs for a full batch).  To save the
   trouble of de-veining shellfish, you can have two or three big ones for
   each person, and use small bay shrimp for the remainder.
   
   *  This recipe comes from the “Garlic Lovers' Cookbook,” published by the
