A friend told me she had been making a dish like this recently so I decided to give it a go. Very light and fresh - perfect for summer supper with a green salad.

This is outstandingly simple and yet so full of flacour. I scaled it down for 2 servings. Perfect pasta dish, thanks for sharing.

VERY VERY TASTY! I didn't have lemon zest (used bottled lemon juice) but it was wonderful. I ate this alone as an entree for lunch. I will have to try it some time as a side dish and see what the family thinks of it. Thanks!

Very, very good pasta. Didn't change a thing. We especially loved it topped with Italian Style Shrimp With Lemon and Garlic #104705.
