Made this for Spring PAC 2012 and delicious! I love scallops and lemons so this was up DH's and my alley. I followed the instructions only adding just a little butter to the olive oil. Served with brown rice and asparagus. Definately will make again. Thank you for posting....oh yes I did use lemon pepper for the black pepper which really didn't make much difference.

I'm a college student doing my best to eat healthy! I love to cook for my roommates, but between the vegetarian, the perpetual dieter, and the picky eater I have living with me, pasta night is the only thing we can really agree on. I love to go out and party, shop, and just veg out with my girlfriends. I really hate people who talk through movies...just watch, you'll find out what happens!
