Scalloped Scallops

Spotted a cool new product at Trader Joe's the other day. Saucy Scallops with Mushrooms. $4.99 for each 16 ounce bag found in the frozen section. It's basically scallops in a creamy mushroom and cheese sauce.

You can just heat & eat. The bag suggests tossing them on some rice or pasta but since that was out for me (don't do either by choice) here's what I came up with. It's super yummy, scallops have oodles of protein (4 oz. = 23 grams), add that it's super fast to put together and you have a keeper...
