Atkins Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols/Glycerin (if applicable)



  • 2 cup prepared Organic Brown Rice Penne Pasta
  • 3 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 1/4 lb Scallop (Mixed Species)
  • 5 1/3 tbsp Real Mayonnaise
  • 5 1/3 tbsp chopped Chives
  • 1 fl oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp Lemon Zest


  1. Prepare pasta according to package directions. 
  2. While pasta is cooking, season scallops with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over high heat. Sauté scallops until browned and just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side (scallops should be opaque but not rubbery). 
  3. When pasta is cooked, reserve 1/4 cup pasta cooking water and drain the rest.
  4. Toss pasta, mayonnaise, minced chives, juice and zest. Gently toss scallops and their accumulated juices with pasta. Add reserved pasta water if necessary to loosen sauce and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
