    From Cooking Light, July, 2007. "Sear the scallops while the orzo cooks. Serve this easy but impressive meal with a green salad, garlic bread, and a crisp white wine."

      This recipe would have got 5 stars as the scallops and lemon orzo were very flavourful...but... after making the orzo, I was short by 3/4 cup on the 4th serving. Next time, I will increase the orzo to 1-1/2 cups and the broth to 1-1/2 cups. Also, I would use lemon pepper instead of regular to give the scallops a little more zip..and cook the scallops 2 minutes on each side rather than 3. Once the scallops were cooked, I added some of the juices back into the orzo This recipe makes up under 30 minutes and calculated out to be 12 points on Weight Watchers
