I found this recipe at the last minute and couldn't find the Mascarpone cheese. I used 8 oz. of cream cheese instead and it was absolutely delicious!! Very thick and rich!!
I was really looking forward to making this. We had 6 gorgeous bacon wrapped scallops, and that made the prep different, as we had to spend a bit more time browning the bacon around them. All in all, it was tasty, just wasn't knock us out of the park for the investment.
Fantastic dish. . . The sauce is rich and has a perfectly sweet and subtle taste that compliments this seafood pasta dish. I added diced onion to the vegetables and upped the amount of asparagus and mushrooms, which is recommended. And if possible, add some shredded salmon on top of the pasta before placing the scallops and sauce on top as is seen in my photo for this recipe. It was a delicious idea that worked magnificently. . .
YOM YOM! I made lots of changes to this recipe out of practicality/$$. I halved it because I was trying to use up 4 oz of mascarpone. I subbed bay scallops in for regular (cheaper and better IMO). I subbed broccoli for asparagus (cheaper and also delicious). I subbed rotini noodles for shells because I had those on hand. Excellent recipe!
WOW WOW WOW! This was amazing! My store was out of mascarpone cheese so I used 8oz cream cheese, 1/4 heavy cream, and 3tbsp sour cream... it makes more sauce and I highly suggest it! I used 2 garlic cloves instead of one and used Farfalle pasta instead. Amazing and delicious! Top with some parmesan cheese and you are good to go! SUCH a tasty meal! I also tried a reviewer's suggestion and added some flaked salmon on top! PERFECTION! Thanks so much for the recipe!
This was very good and simple to make. I did add extra garlic,asparagus, and mascarpone cheese, and topped it with freshly grated romano (parmesan would work too; any salty, grated cheese) and smoked salmon to contrast with the sweetness of the scallops and sauce.
We loved this recipe! Absolutely delicious! After reading some reviews I used 8oz of cream cheese instead & made a little less pasta. Followed the rest of the recipe exactly and it was great!
My husband and I really liked this recipe. What an interesting way to use mascarpone. I made the recipe exactly as written except found that 16 oz. of pasta seemed like way too much. I probably only put about 10 oz. in and we felt that was just right. Thanks for a great recipe!
