Scallops taste extravagant, but they’re actually low in fat. This recipe pairs them with superfine pasta, lightly coated with a lively white wine, garlic, onion and lemon sauce. —Nancy and John Mueller, Menomonee Falls, WI
- 8 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta
- 3/4 pound bay scallops
- 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
- 1 small onion, chopped
