    Galley Devil's Note:

    NOTE: The sauce can be prepared up to 8 hours in advance, in which case it will need to be refrigerated. Then bring it to room temperature before using it.

      Another marvelous non-tomato pasta recipe. I really loved the lemon a lot and in a smaller portion it was a perfect side for tonights baked fish. I did trim the amount of oil used and it didn't seem to hurt it any. This will be made again :D. Made for Pick A Chef, Spring 2913. Galley Devil, you've been a great adoptee.
