Hubby and I loved the scallops and sauce with this recipe. The sauteed arugula and red peppers were flavorful and a change of pace from the pasta that usually accompanies our seafood. I served this with crusty roasted garlic baguette to sop up the sauce from the plate, and Hubby practically licked it clean. We will make this again.
