      A wrote this and thought I had submitted but - oops it was gone so here I go again. We really enjoyed this dish. I used yellow pepper (red would look better - but they taste the same), 1/2 and 1/2, 1 clove of garlic & added a little pesto and marjoram. My cheese was a combination of fresh parmesian and assagio. I sauted scallops in the butter from the peppers with some olive oil added, then deglazed the pan with an Italian white wine - Grillo, I removed the scallops and made the sauce then returned the scallops and peppers to the pan. I didn't have time to make fresh pasta so I used shells, which seemed quite appropriate. The bright lemon flavor was perfect with the scallops and the shells held on to the sauce to make every bite delicious. Thank you realbirdlady for a lovely recipe.

      I thought this sounded like it would be good with shrimp, so I added a pound of peeled shrimp with the red peppers. Otherwise, I followed directions, except for using half-and-half instead of cream. With the changes, I had enough sauce for about 12 ounces of fettuccine. This was great. Looking forward to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Reviewed for ZWT4.
