Reviews for Scallop Pesto Pasta
"yummy & easy to make"
"Very easy and quick, delicious too. The only thing I did different was to use olive oil instead of butter to sauté the scallops"
"This was very good. It reminded me of a dish I had at a local restaurant. We had this with Italian bread and olive oil dipping sauce. Delicious!"
