    Kathy228's Note:

    A very lemony pasta that can be eaten as a main meal with a salad and toasted bread, or as a side dish with chicken or seafood. It's especially delicious served with pan seared shrimp. I counted a tablespooon of lemon juice/zest as the yield from one medium lemon. So the amount can be a little under- or over if you like it really sour!

      This was SO good!! I loved the tart flavor and the fact that it was pretty cheap to make. I used fat free half-and-half and parsley instead of basil because thats what I had. We'll be making this pretty often from now on. Thank you!

      Lovely pasta. Thanks Kathy for giving me the go ahead on using milk for this. I was afraid it wouldn't thicken up because of that, but it did. I also cut out the butter, halved the oil, and cut the cheese back to a sprinkle. A good pasta dish!

      Review My Recipe Game - I really like this! Cut the recipe down to make this for myself for lunch today. As my fresh basil wasn't looking too good, I had to use dried. I also added a sprinkling of salt at the end to help bring out all the flavors. The cream mix curdled a bit, but smoothed out after the addition of the lemon, which gave it a nice tang. Thanks Kathy for a great recipe!
