This sounds difficult, but it is sooooooo easy!!! And the people you serve will thing you slaved over the stove ALL DAY LONG!!!!  NOT!!!!

  • 1 pkg alfredo sauce mix (such as Knorr or McCormick)
  • 2 cups fat free milk (or if calories are not a problem use 1/2 & 1/2)
  • 1 TBS oil
  • 3 cups sliced fresh mushrooms….any kind you want!!!
  • 1 (10) package of fresh spinach OR  a 12 oz package of frozen spinach, thawed!! Again….I give you choices!!
  • 3/4 c grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 3/4 tsp dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 lbs (or 3 sea scallops each) of sea scallops (those are the big ones and they can be fresh or frozen and thawed!
  • cooking spray

Okay, prepare the sauce according to package directions and set aside.

Put oil in pan and put over medium/high heat until it is hot (it glistens)

Add the mushrooms and saute for about 5 minutes.  Then add the spinach and saute until cooked or wilted (depending on whether or not you used fresh or frozen)

Once both are cooked, and stir in Alfredo sauce and put on low.

In another saucepan, heat 1 TBS of oil until hot….

Now, combine parmesan cheese AND italian seasoning in a bowl.  Take the scallops and spray the tops with the cooking spray and then dredge in the cheese/seasoning and then put them in a hot pan and sear for about 1 minute, then turn over and sear the other side and cook.  No more than 2 minutes or until the color is opaque.

When scallops are done, take the alfredo spinach and coat the bottom of a bowl and then top with 3 scallops…sprinkle a little more parmesan cheese on top and serve.  You can even put this over cooked pasta!! Serve with a nice crusty bread and of course, a GREAT glass of wine or beer!! The choice is yours!!!

As always….BONER APPETITE!!!!
