Delicious! So fresh tasting and super easy. I used the juice of half a lemon instead of the zest.

This was a delicious pasta dish, enjoyed by the whole family, which means I'll be making it again. I used mostly broccoli and orange pepper. The surprise ingredient was the lemon zest and it was really good with the garlic! Thanks for posting, Luvmybge.

Absolutely awesome. Thanks for finding. I had no luck. 1 1/2 lbs ends up being 6 cups. I added extra sundried tomatoes, and parmesan, as well as a pinch of red pepper flakes (just my taste). I took my husbands out before adding the red pepper. This is without doubt one of my favourite pasta dishes (and now I don't have to go out to have it) Leanne ps. I took a picture of it. I will download it and attach it soon.
