I will be adding another bag of scallops to make it more meaty next time. It was really good, everyone had seconds. It was nice and quick too. I put like a cup or more of pesto in mine.

This recipe was very quick and easy---also really delicious. After taking a couple of bites, I decided to add more pesto and a dash of salt. The extra pesto really jazzed it up. Will make again.
