"This was very easy to prepare. I used 1/3 red, yellow & orange pepper to add wasn't abundantly flavorful but I love scallops--I'd probably add more hot sauce next time-but there will be a next time"

"Other than swapping the peppers for shredded carrots, I followed the recipe to the letter. My entire family loved it. It was quick, had a great flavor, and healthy to boot!"
