Lemon Cream Shrimp and Pasta

Lemon Cream Shrimp and Pasta created by Jamilahs_Kitchen

Lemony cream sauce with pasta, vegetables and shrimp. If you love lemons, this sauce is to die for. I cut this recipe in half for 2 and it worked out just fine with a little leftover.

    I really enjoyed this. It was easy to make and very tasty. I used fat-free half & half since I am watching the waistline so it wasn't quite as rich as I know it should be. Still loved it! I also used spinach instead of arugula since that is what they had at the store.....very nice! Made for ZWT3

    This is lovely light pasta sauce, with lots of flavor. I used 1 cup each of cream and 1/2 & 1/2, skipped the arugula and used chopped tomatoes. My son and I had portions for lunch with shrimp and broccoli, I'm using the rest for a potluck, with finely chopped red pepper, tomatoes and fresh grated parmesian added, I'll be serving it cool. The zing of the lemon is really good, I served this with Recipe #159392 and a nice glass of Reisling.
