    I was really exited to make this recipe because my bf loves scallops. The pasta ended up with no flavor. I kept adding cumin and salt and pepper nothing really changed. The food went to waste.  -  15 Jan 2011


    This was an OK recipe as it stands but needed more flavor. I made it a second time to see if I could spruce it up. It was awesome. I added 1/2 cup of white wine, 2 tablespoons butter, jumbo shrimp and little neck steamers (in their shells).  -  10 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is an absolutely delicious meal and its just beautiful to look at. It has wonderful texture. Definiely use FRESH Basil. I also added shrimp. After the pasta was cooked I sauteed it in a couple tablespoons of olive oil and minced garlic and tossed the pasta in with the sauce and let it simmer for 5 minutes to soak in the flavors. Its a gorgeous looking dish and so tasty. A perfect summer meal and I'm sure I'll make this quick meal during the Christmas shopping season. Its comfort food also. Hope I can find fresh basil during the winter months.  -  23 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
