I like to serve this lovely pasta, featuring scallops and shrimp, with crusty Italian bread. Sprinkled with tomato and parsley, this dish looks as mouthwatering as it tastes. —Jimmy Spellings, Oakland, Tennessee

"Great recipe! Just the right balance. Made it for dinner tonight and husband loved it too. Followed recipe exactly and used fettuccini from the fridge aisle which made it extra special. Thanks for the recipe!"

"Since I live at the shore when I saw this I wondered what a guy from the middle of the country knows about seafood. I did go to college where the man lives so I thought what the heck, give it a shot.

Tonight I'm making it for about the 10th time...few modifications, but its a winner."

"We loved this. There was no need to add any thickening agent--The sauce was perfect. We doubled the recipe and found it just right for four people. The sauce is rich, but the tomatoes even that out--Delicious!"

"This was delicious. One of my sons is a self-proclaimed food critic. He ate three helpings of this dish. I did add a little cornstarch & cold water to thicken up the sauce. I also added a little more Parmesan cheese than was called for."
