    I omitted the lemon zest and thought this dish was very tasty. I will probably omit the oregano next time. I like oregano, but I think an herb with a milder flavor (maybe basil) would work a bit better. I love the slight sweetness that the carrots bring to this dish. Other than needing to tweak it a little for my own tastes, I think this is a very good recipe. I'm glad you shared it ~ Thank you.

    This was very good, the only thing I skipped was the wine and added apple juice instead since I dont care for wine in my food. I think any seafood would work well in this dish. It is one of those ellegent but easy meals.

    Made this last night and was enjoyed by all. A few adjutments, not many i promised,lol. I opened crushed tom (with garlic & basil) i didn't read the can and assumed they were diced. And i used white wine. I had ziti on hand so i used the whole box. I did it in stages. I made the sauce and cooked the pasta early in the day. Then finished up at dinner time. It did make alot my pan was over flowing so it did take extra time in the oven It was in almost 40 mins. The shrimp and scallops came out perfect. We really enjoyed this and are having the left overs tom. Thanks for the post!

    Interesting casserole, but felt the seafood lost some of its flavor cooked in the casserole (rather than stir fryed as we usually prepare shrimp and scallops) and felt the sacue could use a bit more seasoning, but for a WW meal it is very filling. Thanks for sharing!


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
