This was an absolute delight. I used lemon pepper linguine and was liberal with the lemon juice because I love lemon. I think I *might* have over done it with the parsley too but it sure was a good dinner. There was no cheese on mine just to keep from adding more calories, lol. I enjoyed every fork wrapped mouthful. Lazy, your recipes are treasures and I don't think that I have ever tried one that I didn't love.
