Reviews for Company Seafood Pasta
"The sauce was way too thick, and the pasta clumped together. My family did not like it; I will not make it again."
"Overall, excellent dish. Served this on Mother's Day and both my parents loved it! But I felt like it was missing something...salt maybe...though, I did not salt the pasta water so that could have helped if I did. Next time, I might follow the previous reviewer's suggestion and add some heavy cream to the sauce to make it a little thinner."
"Two thumbs up here too! My son loves scallops but even those who don't should like this dish. I sauteed them instead of boiling them cause I like the browned color, and I added 1 cup heavy cream and the juice of 1 lemon."
"This receipe is great! it was simple to make and really did take about 30 minutes to make. Even my 8 year old nephew liked it!"
