Great recipe! Made as posted, except we added a Tbs of olive oil to the butter, and used fresh garlic and salt. The only change I would make next time, is to use raw shrimp that would marinate a few minutes in lemon before cooking, as DH said not enough lemon flavor in the shrimp. This is a great recipe for us, as I prefer to not eat meat/fish, and DH loves it, with this dish we can both be happy! Thanks for sharing a great recipe.This is a keeper and will be a regular in our house.

LOVED this! This was one of those last minute thoughts that came together quickly. I used fresh basil from my herb garden, fresh garlic and 4 Tbs of butter instead of 2. Delicious!

This was super easy to make, which is always a plus. I accidentally used too much garlic, but it still tasted great. However, I did find that I didn't have nearly enough liquid to coat the pasta, so I will probably double the "sauce" in the future.

I used whole wheat fettuccine with milled flax seed and Romano cheese instead of Parmesan. I also used fresh garlic and kosher salt instead of "garlic salt." Yet in the end, this dish only used one pot and a spoon, was quick to prepare and was delicious. Thank you for the recipe and the inspiration!

I loved this. I am a beginner and appreciated this is simple enough. I used the whole lemon and it came out very good. You could feel the flavor, but for us it was great (we love lemon). I didn't have basil, so I skipped it. I added lemon & herbs spices to the boiling water when cooking the pasta. This recipe took me a while because I still cannot do things in parallel. I prepared the mix, peeled the shrimp and then cooked the pasta. But once I get better I'll be doing this for regular dinner.
