Photo may be seen here (as Fettuccine With Snow Peas) in the Savor gallery: www.annacia.com. What a delicious recipe. I did skip the chicken but made all else by the recipe and the pasta was so yummy, I used the fresh snow peas (tagged this recipe to use some of them :D) and you wouldn't believe how good this simple sauce is until you taste it. For the protein I used stuffed crab in it's shell (had a lot of chicken lately, lol). The pairing worked beautifully and dinner was very well enjoyed. :DReply
Unfortunately, I didn't have fresh snow peas. I love them but had to use frozen. This was a yummy recipe! We enjoyed it alot. I doubled the lemon juice and the garlic. YUM! I agree with Deantini- this recipe tastes even better than you'd expect it to from looking at the simple list of ingredients. Thanks loof.Reply
Once in awhile you come accross a recipe where the ingredients add up to so much more flavour than you would think looking at the recipe. This is one of them. We loved this dish, so easy, healthy and packed with flavour. Just the right amount of lemon, too. I doubled the garlic but otherwise followed the recipe. This goes into Favorites for 2011.Reply
Not sure how I managed to tag this in the game in which I tagged it, but I did, & it went through, so . . . Definitely a winner recipe in my book, what with the ease of preparation & its much acclaimed demise at the table! Made as written, although I also added a cup of fresh peas! Loved the combo of peas with the hint of lemon, although another time I might just include a slight teaspoon of lemon zest! A wonderful keeper recipe! Thanks for sharing it!
