REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
Ok - I've made this dish twice now and have figured a couple of things out. Where they say: Add wine, salt, ground black pepper and 1/8 cup cheese.....DO NOT add the cheese. Save it and put it in at the end. I mean, really - boiling cheese? All you get is goo.

Second there is no need to add cornstarch as the last reviewer mentioned. Sure there is a lot of liquid - that's why you follow the directions. Boil rapidly, 7-8 minutes will REDUCE the liquid, which is what it's meant to do.

And do not let the scallops boil for that amount of time. You are going to have tough, leathery scallops. Boil the liquid 7-8 minutes and add the scallops LATER - say for the last minute or so to come out tender.

And my last observation is there is no mention of the parsley in the list of ingredients. So there is no mention of HOW MUCH parsley to use. I added about a tablespoon minced at the end. The first time I made it, I omitted the parsley altogether because I didn't see that I needed it until the end.

Other than that - a fine, tasting and easy dish to make!

I thought is was a little to juicy so I added a little corn strach at the very end of cooking to thicken it up, but my company and I enjoyed it and I'll have it again.
