So simple to make and so good to eat!! I added some imitation crab (much the same texture of the scallops) and used canned tomatoes. I made the sauce in the morning and reheated it when needed. Thanks for the post.

This was delicious. I made a little too much pasta (over half a pound) so we were wishing for more sauce. I didn't have Italian seasoning - just subbed 1/2 tsp. oregano and 1/2 tsp. dried basil. I sprinkled fresh snipped Italian flat leaf parsley over this to serve. My family loved it. Thanks.

If you find it hard to believe that scallops and tomato sauce go together, try this recipe. It was ABSOLUTELY fabulous! This is one to make many times over. Thanks!
