Simple, easy and delicious. Lemon and pasta are a great combination and this can be created really quickly. One of my favourite pasta recipes and an excellent vegetarian choice.

I made this with fresh shiitakes and absolutely gorgeous fat peas i got at a local market on my way home today. The peas were so fresh, i didn't bother cooking them first, i just tossed them in the pan right before the mushrooms. I only added one dried red chili, but i'm sure more would be great for someone looking for a spicier dish. I used spinach fettucine (it's what i had in the house) and it was totally delicious. It was done cooking almost before I knew it!

I'm afraid of "chilies" and left them out ... but we enjoyed this one with a simple salad ... and a wonderful raspberry-sherbet-to- follow. Thank you Kate.(Prehaos someone could give me chili lessons?)
