Mez's creamy seafood and pasta

CorrespondentJune 4, 2008 

I recently had an amazing pasta dish at Mez contemporary Mexican restaurant in Durham. It was shrimp and scallops in a tomatillo cream sauce with cilantro pesto. It was amazing, and my friends and I have been trying to re-create the recipe since. Do you think you could pull a few strings and get the recipe? -- B.L., Chapel Hill

No string-pulling necessary. Aaron Stumb, executive chef at Mez (5400 Page Road; 941-1630; www.mezdurham.com) is happy to oblige.
