This is a great Rachael Ray recipe. All in my family thought it was delicious. I only used 1/2 lb. penne because I wanted more sauce than pasta. The flavors are well balanced with a lovely lemony note. Very doable for a busy weeknight dinner. Thanks, KC Cooker.

This is a quick and delicious dinner for a summer night. Very nice with added green veggie like fresh green beans. Will definitely make this again.

This was totally delicious! I replaced white whine with apple cider vinegar and it stillturned out fine. Actually I left out the lemon, it was strong from the cider already, and after letting it simmer for a couple minutes the intensity of the cider was suffeciently reduced. The whole family loved, thanks for sharing!
