Delicious! Served it several times to guests.Everyone loved it. The bay scallops are good but I used atlantic sea scallops, The best if your a scallop lover.

Fabulous! Even those who only like chicken were happy because browning the scallops before covering with sauce didn't make it 'fishy' tasting. i frequently make it when I need an impressive dinner but am not sure if my guests like seafood. The sauce is wonderful over veggies.

I switched up many of the ingredients and it still came out great. Used simple 3mix cheese and marsala wine made all the difference...YUM!

my family absolutely loved this! I made with light half&half and reduced fat Mozzarella chesse (we are not too fond of swiss) the SECOND time and no one noticed and again the raves!
