This recipe was wonderful! Easy to make. (Much more easier than cleaning the scallops!) I added 2 cloves of chopped garlic to it to add a little more depth and changed fresh tomatoes with sun dried tomatoes. Amazing! You can make this with chicken or shrimp as well. Definitely a do over!

Love this! Used wheat pasta instead. My grown son had 3rd's. Yummy ! November 10, 2012

I have tried several variations of this recipe-adding garlic, using shrimp, adding baby bella mushrooms, doubling the spinach, etc.... It has been superb every way I've tried it. This is now a family favorite, even with our 7, 6 and 3 year olds!
