We enjoyed this, but the sauce was strictly ok. I used bay scallops and cooked them for a total of about 3 minutes. The last time I made this, I completely omitted the pasta and sauce, and served the scallops over a green salad. I think I'll just keep the scallop portion of this recipe for the future.

My husband and I love sea scallops but this recipe just didn't work for us. I knew there would be problems when it said to put the garlic and the scallops in a hot skillet with a little bit of olive oil for six minutes (three each side). The garlic burned -- no surprise. After I cooked the scallops and set them aside, they got soggy. The worst of it was the sauce, which didn't have much flavor. Altogether it was a soggy, flavorless mess. I won't make it again because there are lots of better Cooking Light scallops recipes.

This was very okay. The scallops were good, but we did not like them with the red sauce. They might be better with plainer pasta, tossed with oil and garlic perhaps. There are many better scallop recipes in my opinion.

this was simple and tasty. i served it over brown rice and substituted the sugar for honey since i had no sugar in the house. this will become a regular.
