    ChrisMc's Note:

    This is a creamy lemon sauce I found in a magazine - the lemon flavor is very intense. I really like this with seafood. You can use it as a side dish, or add clams, shrimp, etc., to the sauce.

      This was good. I misread the recipe and used ALL the juice from the lemon. I doubled this recipe and I didn't have 1/2 & 1/2 so I used 1 cup nonfat milk and 1 cup whipping cream. Mine did NOT curdle. You have to boil the lemon juice for atleast 30 seconds then whisk the half and half in and keep whisking while it reduces. I served this with "Chicken Thighs with Sweet Onion Balsamic Relish Chicken Thighs With Sweet Onion Balsamic Relish. After both sauces were done, I pulled the meat off the bone, and mixed back into the balsamic relish, then mixed this in with this lemon pasta and it was a fabulous balance. The sweetness balanced out the tartness of the lemon. Superb!

      This is easy and very good. I used half cup milk with 1/2 cup heavy cream instead of Half and half. Also I added Mrs Dash seasoning and dry basil leaves. Delicious! Will Make it again.

      Lovely and tastes exactly what I've had in Italy. I used heavy cream instead of half & half since I was trying to get rid of it. I also increased the butter by a Tablespoon. I also used fresh egg fettucine. Since this is such a simple dish, I think the ingredients must be top quality.
