This is based on a recipe from the cookbook that came with my KitchenAid mixer. The introduction states, "Fresh scallops and mushrooms simmered in a light but spicy tomato sauce," and "When selecting scallops, choose ones that are translucent and shiny in appearance and have a sweetish aroma." Serve with hot cooked rice or a loaf of crusty bread.

Incredibly simple and foolproof. The ingredients are common; the prep is simple. The taste is quite sophisticated Don't hesitate serving this to your family or guests. My wife and I loved it. We paired this with a malbec from Argentina for a great meal.

I love scallops, and this light-tasting sauce really lets the flavor of the scallops shine. I made exactly per the directions, and served over angel hair pasta. Very enjoyable dish.
