    crispychick's Note:

    Just made this recipe last night from the December issue of Cooking Light. It was really delicious and satisfying and hard to believe it was light!! Other than substituting the green bell pepper for yellow bell pepper and doctoring it up with a little hot sauce, I followed the recipe to a tee. I think shrimp would be good in this, too. (oh, it did take a little more butter than it called for!)(I did use a cast iron skillet rather than a nonstick to get a good sear on the scallops)
