Found at, tried last night and the family loved it! I doubled the sauce recipe (not the pasta). Creamy with a little bit of a flavorful kick. Easy, with ingredients I already had on hand.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine salt, lemon pepper, garlic and onion powders, nutmeg, chili powder, and cayenne pepper.
  2. Mix cornstarch with 1/4 cup water, set aside.
  3. Place scallops in a bowl; sprinkle with spice mixture and toss to coat well.
  4. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water just until tender.
  5. Just before pasta is done, heat the oil and butter in a skillet. Saute the scallops, tossing to cook on all sides, until just done. Place scallops in serving bowl.
  6. To the skillet, add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Stir cornstarch and water mixture into the pan to thicken the sauce; bring to a simmer.
  7. Add the scallops and sour cream to the skillet.
  8. Drain the cooked pasta and stir into hot scallops mixture.

Easy and delicious. My husband had thirds. Spices are lovely in the just the right amounts. One thing, though -- it's a lovely peach cream color, but without variation. Needs to be served with something deep, dark green -- broccoli or romaine or asparagus or green beans. You know. And sprinkled with a little choppped, flat-leaf parsley. What a great dish -- thanks so much!
