      This is really good! I love shrimp, and pasta, and lemon, so I figured I'd really enjoy this. I'd love to try it with asparagus, but with the current price so high I'll have to wait until my plants start producing again. Instead I used bell peppers, which give a nice crunch and pretty color to the dish, along with some chopped parsley to add a bit of green color. The sauce feels a lot richer in the mouth than the ingredients lead you to believe- I could swear I'm eating a full fat cream sauce. The lemon is a VERY strong influence in this dish; if you don't like lemon, move on to another recipe. I, however, love lemon, and would be happy to lick every last bit of sauce off of the serving dish. Great dish, thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8

      Paula another great recipe from you! Thank you. Made for ZWT5. I was skeptic for the mayo but followed directions and was I glad I did. DH and I enjoyed this for dinner last night. A bit of leftovers for lunch today. I did use full fat mayo as that is all I had and I also used brocolli instead of asparagus. Thought I had enough but did not so subbed in. Came out fabulous! Wil make this again. 5 stars for ease of making, 5 stars for the meal itself. Super!
      OMG! I just made this again for AUS/NZ Swap 51. I really like this! This time I used the asparagus and WOW what a difference in taste. Both are fabulous! Thank you Paula.

      A winner for sure. Loved the bright flavor the lemon brought to the dish. I did adjust the pasta amount a bit to serve 3, but kept the other amounts the same and used regular mayo. Funny how the shrimp curled up ,when cut in half, while cooking. :)
