      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.
