This came from a store ad a while back for their new sea food department. I cut it out and tried it, and it's definitely a keeper. Great flavor--if you want compliments, make this for dinner.

So good!! Even the non-seafood lover in the family liked it. I couldn't find the tomatoes with balsamic vinegar and oil. I used the ones with basil, garlic and onions and then added about 3 Tbls. of vinegar to the recipe. I also cut back on the fresh basil since the tomatoes already had some in it. An easy dish to prepare with gourmet results. I served it with roasted asparagus.

Great recipe. I only had a 1/2 pound of scallops on hand, and it still came out flavorful. Served it with some Italian bread with dipping oil. My husband asks for this regularly.

I did not make the scallops as I used #134951 recipe for them, but the pasta was great, did not have the balsamic tomatoes so I just added some balsamic vinegar to the regular diced tomatoes, then put he pan seared scallops on top....was a 5 star dinner for a monday...
