    Chef #625570's Note:

    The idea of al dente perfectly seasoned roasted squash together with plump Sea Scallops topped with a tomato basil sauce will have you forgetting there is not a starch in the recipe.

      This was fantastic! I had to make substitutions based on what I had on hand. I used cod fillets instead of scallops. I also had no fresh basil so I added some homemade basil pesto to the crushed tomatoes. I unintentionally simmered it longer than usual so it reduced to a nice thick sauce. (This time the household distractions worked in my favor!) Next time I make this recipe it will be with scallops which I love more than cod. This is now one of my favorite lite seafood dishes. Thanks so much for making me seem like a great cook!

      Great main dish! I had large scallops and they were excellent with the sauce and squash. I'm going to make again before winter is out!
