Jamie's Scallops and Beans -Adapted from Jamie Oliver

This dish has become a Christmas Eve tradition at our house. Its fun because all of us can get involved in the preparation. Start by draining 2-14 oz cans of canellini beans and heating them in a sauce pan to a low simmer. Add 4 chopped anchovie fillets cayenne pepper to taste and 2 cloves minced garlic. Simmer for 5 min and then add 1/4C white wine. When the mixture regains the boil, mash the beans to a paste and keep warm. Next, quarter 8 Roma tomatoes. Drizzle them with olive oil and put them in a 450 degree oven for 15 min. About half way through the time add 4 slices of prosciutto. Finally, cook 8-12 scallops 2 minutes on a side by sauteing them in 2T very hot olive oil. Place a "puddle" of beans on the plate, arrange the tomatoes and prosciutto and 2-3 scallops and top with arugula leaves. A delicious combinations of flavors.
