    I had a version of this at a retaurant and had to create it at home when the chef wouldn't give me the recipe. I think it turned out delicious.

      I've nerver heard my husband praise a meal as much as he did this one. We have eaten Scallop carbonara in the pastin a restaurant. but never heard him praise it as much. I was told that this is a must do recipe in the future.

      Made this for Valentine's day. Fabulous! My first try at scallops in anything - and it turned out perfectly! Next night's leftovers and the kids nearly finished it all up...mushrooms, and all. That's saying a lot :)

      I just made this dish for my wife and I. I have always been a lover of carbonara, and this is the best I have ever tasted!

      Thank you so much!
