    Manami's Note:

    The pesto can be made two days ahead; cover and chill. Use sea scallops not bay scallops. Sea scallops are larger and make for a nice intimate dinner for two. Bon apetit! This comes from Cooking Light, November 1996.

      This was delicious. My DH consumed it with flying colors. Though the lemon intensity is too much for children, for adults it's definately a winner.
