  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch pie plate.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil. Rinse the scallops, and drop them into the boiling water; cook for 2 minutes. Remove the scallops with a slotted spoon, and pat dry. Place on the bottom of the prepared pie plate.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt the butter, and stir in the flour. Cook over low heat for 3 minutes. Whisk in heavy cream and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, or until thick.
  4. Squeeze the spinach dry, and spread over the scallops. Pour the cream sauce over the spinach, and top with mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, and bread crumbs. Sprinkle Old Bay Seasoning over the bread crumbs.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until browned and bubbly.

This was wonderfull!!!! I did however make a few changes. I did not boil scallops. Just ran hot water over frozen 1 ½ lb pkg of scallops until ½ thawed. Put in 9x13 pan. Put steamed baby s...

I don't think you need to boil the scallops first-I instead baked for about 20-25 minutes at 350 and they came out perfect. I used less Old Bay than called for- I think a tablespoon might make ...

This is very good. I used fat free half and half, I didn't pre-cook the scallops and used salt-free creole seasoning. I wouldn't use as much seasoning as the recipe calls for and no extra salt. ...

This was absolutely fabulous!!I skipped step #2(pre-boiling is not necessary--they bake perfectly in the oven for 25 minutes). I used fresh spinach which I tore into smaller, bite-size pieces. (...

This was very good. I, too, read the other reviews and did not cook the scallops ahead of time, I used fresh baby spinach, used milk instead of cream, italian bread crumbs -- and I added some f...
