    Has anyone but me realized if you cut the recipe down its wrong try cutting it to 3 servings and read what you get as far as amounts compared to the instructions

    The first recipe my husband said was "company worthy!" We both loved it! Don't let the little bit longer length intimidate you; its not that difficult. Instructions are very clear. I did use all scallops, as that is what I had on hand, but I'll be making this again as I think it would be a great way to use up small quantities of shrimp, scallops, crab or even lobster. Delicious, Derf! Thank you for an excellent recipe!

    I just had one of the best dinners ever! This is an awesome recipe! I halved the recipe for just me and my husband, and used all shrimp because of what I had on hand. I used an aged New York white cheddar for the cheese. I wasn't quite sure about the sourdough chunks but went ahead and added them per the recipe and, I have to tell you, I think that made the whole dish! My husband and I were fishing out the bread and sopping up the sauce, it was so good! We had this over a little mostaccioli and also had a green salad. Thanks so much Dorothy, this is going into my 'best ever will do again and again' file!
    I chose to make this dish for my stepsons birthday dinner. I could not imagine a simple recipe like this coming out so good. Everybody raved how good this dish was. Thanks Derf for making our meal so special and memorable. I will be making this recipe again. 10 stars!
