My family LOVES this recipe (minus the 16-year-old son who hates almost everything but pizza). I even impressed MIL and SIL who thought they'd hate it because they don't like scallops. They took seconds;-)!! This is one of the few things my husband will request if I haven't made it in a while. I make this recipe as a way to use up fresh vegetables I have on hand. I make a few small changes when I make this. 1) I use an extra 1/2 cup of cold milk with the flour to thicken the sauce. Using the hot milk from the pan makes the flour mixture gummy; 2) I use 3 cloves of garlic minced and saute with the onion; 3) I add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese after the flour/milk combination to thicken it a bit more and punch up the flavor. Make sure to use plenty of salt and pepper as well. Read More

I'm sorry... I hate to give a negative review given how much effort it takes to come up with a recipe and submit it. However this recipe amounts to boiling your vegetables and seafood in milk. The onion and garlic BARELY come through and the sauce was SO runny. To let it "thicken " as the recipe advises would have taken so long that the vegetables and seafood would have been way overcooked. Putting a little Bay Seasoning on it at the end helped a bit with the flavor. Read More

yum!! this dish is filling delicious and surprisingly pretty low fat. i didn't follow the recipe at all as far as veggie measurements went-- i added lots more as i'm a huge vegetable fan and they truly make the meal! i also left out the scallops and used more shrimp and imitation crab meat. with all the different colored veggies it is a beautiful dish. thumbs up!!!

This recipe was a nice light meal. I cut it in half for my fiance and I to enjoy. We are thinking of even leaving out the scallops next time and adding some more veggies to make an even healthier meal! Thank you! Read More

I thought this recipe was great.Was a big hit in my family.We all love seafood and veggies so it went over very well.I do suggest substituting the milk with 2 cups heavy cream and 1 cup 1%milk.Gives it a thicker sauce but makes it just right if you add some milk to it.Great dish!! Read More

This came out a bit bland. Will definitely need more spices next time. Sauce needs to be thicker. Read More

This dish didn't have much flavor. I added more garlic and some cheese and it was still bland. It never really thickened either. My kids loved it though but they love anything with noodles. I might make it again but spice it up a little. And next time I will probably use cream instead of milk. It might add more fat but I'm sure it will add more flavor too. Read More
