      I used this recipe because I wanted to use up some frozen Bay Scallops. I used the suggestion from other reviewers to cut down on the butter and oil. We enjoyed this dish and I would not hesitate to use it again! Kudos on the find!!!

      The flavors are great, but I found there was way too much oil and butter. Loved the sun dried tomatoes, they added a really nice flavor. Quick to make.....but definitely reduce the oil and butter! I'd half the amount, and then I could give 5 stars.

      Delicious! Not much I can add to all of the great reviews already here. I might cut the amount of butter next time, though, as suggested by others. The sun-dried tomatoes are a nice touch, and I am going to do this again with shrimp. I used a lemon-oregano fettucini I get at a local farmer's market instead of angel hair pasta.
