This was wonderful! I didn't have fresh lemon juice so used 2 tbsp. bottled and it was still wonderful. I served it with salmon and it was perfect. Thanks for a new way to cook pasta.

We really liked this dish alot, only next time I make it I might double the sauce just because there wasn't enough for the pasta for me. But it was a great dinner thanks!

What a wonderful fresh pasta dish! I made the sauce as written this first time. I can see there is a lot of room for additions to the sauce and the pasta. Coming to mind are bits of smoked salmon, grav lax, parsley and garlic. As always (or very often) I halved the amount of pasta because I like lots of sauce. I used a medium size lemon and served this dish with a slice of grilled salmon and mixed in some thinly sliced zucchini at the last minutes of cooking the pasta. Thanks for a delicious meal Mimi!
