Spaghetti with Mussels and Scallops in a Tomato Sauce

I love when my husband, Giuseppe, has the day off from work.  He spoils me by cooking dinner.  Last night he made a tomato-based sauce with mussels and scallops.  He served it over some spaghetti.  I added a nice glass of vino and lit some candles.  We spent a romantic evening at home together. It was the perfect way to pass an autumn night.
