This is quite tasty. Could even make without Capers if you don't have them in your fridge. BUT, be sure to pull the sauce off the heat for a few minutes to cool before adding lemon juice. My sauce curdled because I added the lemon juice when it was still too hot. Didn't ruin it, but wasn't smoothy & pretty sauce!

I tried this recipe tonight. I also used FF Half & Half. It was good, but the sauce never thickened in the least little bit. I don't know if it was because I didn't use heavy cream or not. Still a good recipe.
