Sprinkle the scallops with flour and toss lightly to coat. Set aside. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and mushrooms, and saute about 1 to 2 minutes, until the mushrooms begin to brown. Add the peeled, chopped tomatoes, and cook 1 to 2 minutes longer. Stir in the peas, basil, salt,, nutmeg, and white pepper. Add the scallops and any juice around them and cook until mixture starts to bubble, about 1 minute. Stir in the chicken broth and wine and stir until liquid thickens, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer gently about 4 to 5 minutes, or until the scallops are opaque. Stir in the parsley just before serving. To serve, spoon 1/2 cup of cooked orzo on each plate and top with 1/2 cup of the scallop mixture. Makes 6 (1-cup) servings.
