This was delicious! Super rich and creamy. I used bay scallops....didn't count them, but I know I used more than 25. ;) My "pinch" of white pepper was about 1/4 tsp. This is easy enough for a weeknight meal, yet could also be made for a special occassion/company. Thanx for sharing this recipe. I'll be looking forward to making this again!

Tasted great. Husband loved it too. I don't like my scallops to be over cooked though so the next time that I make this, I will sear the scallops in another pan and add them to the pasta mixture after it is ready. I think having them in the sauce as it thickens, cooks them too much. It was still good though, just could be a little better.
