"My father-in-law made this for us on a visit, and we had to have the recipe. Sauteed scallops with sun-dried tomatoes, double-smoked bacon, garlic and a white wine cream sauce are served over angel hair pasta. This dish could be served in a fine restaurant and yet it is so simple and easy to prepare. Delicious!" — CARI

This was quite delicious and definitely a meal that we'll keep in our dinner rotation. Even my three-year-old son devoured it. As written, the sauce recipe is rather scant on quantity, so when I make it again, I would double the ingredients.
I made this recipe as written, but it just wasn't good. Quite bland and just blah. The sauce was barely enough for one serving, so I would definitely recommend doubling or tripling the sauce portion of the recipe.
This is a very good scallop recipe that even the kids loved. Definitely need to double the sauce. I added extra sun-dried tomatoes also. Did not use the olive oil - the bacon grease left from frying bacon was perfect for cooking the scallops. Will definitely make this again.
My family loved it. My daughter wanted her scallops on the side but she is eight. My husband and I loved it and he does not really eat tomatoes but he did not waste a drop. Based on another reviews comments I doubled the wine, cream, butter, and garlic to make more sauce and I am glad that I did. I also used Fettuccine noodles but suggest you sick with the smaller pasta because my sauce was thin. I also used think cut smoked bacon. Please thank your father-in-law; this will now be in my family’s recipe box.
This was yummy! I used chicken instead of scallops and also added sauted mushrooms. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Fantastic! I added som shitake mushrooms to the sauce and also added a little extra cream and wine to make more sauce. Sooo delicious!!!!!
Pretty much stuck to the recipe. Only made 8 scallops with the original amount of sauce (which came out perfectly) to feed 2 of us. Will make it again! Thank you!
Lovely. A great way to start me thinking of multiple ways to do similar dishes. Maybe 1/2 shrimps & /2 scallops. Capers instead of sun dried tomatos, a little bit of lemon? The possibilities are endless. As it is, I prepared this as written and it was lovely!
