So... I rarely follow recipes. By that I mean they are just generally inspirational and I take it from there but this recipe looked awesome healthy and it sounded really easy to make so I followed it verbatim. the only thing I couldn't accomplish was that i could't find the particular Genoa salami suggested. I bought a quality Genoa Salami but didn't have the exact item. My result looked almost exactly like the recipe as pictured. My family said that this was "bland" and in fact I agree. I think it needs some texture - other than the Salami which really turned out to be dry (maybe it was because I had the wrong kind?). The other problem was that the tomatoes really withered away too much...I thought it seemed soon but in retrospect I am certain that I should have waited until just before adding the Spinach - maybe 60 seconds before tossing in the Spinach? I love these ingredients (except the Salami...). If I do it again I will probably toss in some crumbled bacon for taste and texture. I think this is a pretty healthy dish - fresh mushrooms tomatoes scallops and Spinach... hard to beat. It all came together really easily but I need to toss in something for texture and spice. Maybe other folks who are better cooks that I am will add some ideas. I will check back in a few months and see if some folks have ideas. thanks for posting tho! Read More

I was hesitant to try a recipe with so little reviews but I am glad I did! It turned out very good. I did substitute white button mushrooms for the crimini and it was fine. Read More

I thought this was delicious. I made some changes. used bacon instead of salami and twice as much garlic. I added the tomatoes 1/2c fresh chopped basil and the spinach at the end cooking just until spinach wilted and topped scallops on top instead of tossing to retain their specific flavor. Yummy!!!

Oh man this was SO GOOD! I added shallots with the prosciutto didn't add spinach (didn't have it) and upped the garlic. Added about a half cup pasta water at the end to help thicken as well. Absolutely stellar! Came together quickly.... 10/10 will make again! Read More
