  • I am impressed with the flavor in this dish. To be honest I was worried that all I would taste was noodles. I am really a sauce fan but this dish has a rich taste and I will make it again. The best part is that there is enough here to make 4 servings and add a salad to cut calories. Thanks 4 sharing - 1/6/08

    I'm glad you enjoyed it. We love the flavors, and the contrast in textures between the crispy salty prosciutto and the soft sweet scallops.
