I prepped everything ahead of time and then started it and a bowl of angelhair pasta in the microwave at the same time. Eight minutes from start of cooking to dinner. Great for a quick, tasty elegant dinner. My only problem was thinking of cooking the basil for several minutes. I waited until the very end to add it. I wish I could have reduced the vinegar a bit more but did not want to toughen the scallops.
