Recipe by Baldius Pontius
"This is something I threw together and it turned out fantastic! The flavor of the bacon, along with the scallops, mixes so well with mac and cheese. A perfect combo! Add vegetables for a healthier kick. I like throwing in some steamed broccoli or cauliflower."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

olive oil, or as needed

1 1/4 cups
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Looked good on paper and no doubt will be good on the fork, too, but as it is baking I wanted to offer two friendly observations (not criticisms). First, I doubled the scallops (I like scallops) so I needed my 3 Qt baking dish the 2.5 qt will probably suffice with one package of scallops (the small Bay variety). Second, I cooked everything sequentially, so it took me about an hour to prepare (cooked scallops, cooked bacon in the oven (which took a lot longer than package directions even though I used two baking sheets so I could cook the whole pound at once) boiled pasta, etc.). ?? ??
Great taste, even has a good kick to it. Not sure where it came from since no spicy ingredients were added, just a pleasant surprise.
I used shrimp instead of scallops and added old bay. Delicious and easy!
