    I added fresh parsley a few red pepper flakes and pecorino or parmesan on top just before serving. Also a pinch of onion powder.

    This has become one of our "go to" meals. I also found I needed to spice it up to suit our taste. Curry was a great addition!

    very bland, scallops have no taste, needs more spices.

    We thoroughly enjoyed this recipe but thought it need more seasoning. We will definitely try it again with more salt and pepper.
