      This was a yummy recipe. I made a few changes myself. First one being I quadrupled the liquids because I make 1 1/2 lbs of pasta for 5 of us and wanted to be sure it wasn't dry. I used a whole bunch of asparagus (as it comes) and cut them into 2 inch pieces and added about 1 lb of shrimp to it. I also did not have a lemon but used 3/4 cup of REAL lemon juice, 1 tsp of salt, 3/4 tsp of pepper. I also doubled the water for the asparagus but all turned very yummy! I will be making this again!

      This was really nice. Our only complaint was that it was a bit dry, but a little drizzle of olive oil made everything better. Next time I might add some lemon juice with the zest so that the lemon flavour is stronger. Thanks! Made for PAC SPring 2007.
