I think this recipe has good "bones" however my husband nor I cared for the tang of the lemon in this dish. I made the recipe as directed but, added mushrooms and used ready cut julian strips of carrots. Steaming the broccoli and red pepper was a great idea the texture to these two was perfect! If I were to make this again I would modify it by omitting the lemon and inhancing the flavor with more garlic. I honestly struggled in the ratting of this dish but, ultimately decided to rate this 3 stars due to one of the main ingredients actually being a deterant for us. Thank you for sharing...I definately will be modifying my own alfredo recipe by adding some of the veggies you have in this recipe. I made this for PAC Fall 2009.
