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!
