Mmmmmmmmmmm, what a great break with the heavy winter foods and sauces. The lemon, which I was generous with, created a very light and fresh flavor. I skipped the butter and cooked the onion, garlic in just water. When the mushies and shrimp were added I used 3/4 tsp of olive oil. The penne was very enjoyable but I think I'll use lemon pepper fettuccine next time (and there will be a next time, I still have shrimp in the freezer!). Somehow the penne just seemed too large for the rest of the ingredients. The flavors are classic and the recipe is very quick and easy to made up. Made for Photo Tag.
