    Not too impressed with this. I should have read the reviews first and seared the scallops. There was far too much sauce and runny. I won’t be making this again

    We enjoyed this very much. I did change the method a bit by adding salt and pepper and then browning the scallops in a small amount of olive oil and setting aside. I then proceeded with the recipe as written and then added the cooked scallops at the end. I found this to give the scallops a better taste and was more attractive when browned rather than just opaque. I used angel hair pasta as it is my husband's favorite. This was a pretty and delicious recipe. I am a TOH volunteer field editor.

    Presents beautifully but the sauce is too thin and the scallops a bit overpowering for our taste. Will try it again though. Very easy to make.
