    Sorry, but this didn't work for us at all. We didn't have a scallion, but otherwise followed exactly. Taste test caused us to reach for the cream, as other reviewers did, but we couldn't seem to salvage it. it was too bitter lemony, and more stock and cream helped, but not enough. Sorry.

    This was just ok for us. I think my 6-year old liked it best! It was definitely easy to prepare and had a simple, fresh taste, but seemed to be missing something. My husband added some blue cheese to his and thought that added to the dish.

    This is a good, easy to make dish that stretches a small amount of a pricy ingredient a long way. One observation: a pound of pasta is eight servings, not four. I was cooking for myself, so made 1/4 of the recipe, but a standard 2-ounce portion of small whole wheat shells. I did not have a quarter cup of either stock or broth and did not want to open a can for such a small amount, BUT I did have some heavy cream in the fridge, and the cream worked very well to marry the ingredients and counterpoint the sharpness of the lemon. The peas are a great addition, adding color and fiber. I would certainly serve this to anyone.

    This is a keeper! I was looking for a way to use up some smoked salmon I received as a gift. This is a perfect summer dish - very light, with bright clean flavors. And incredibly simple to make.

    This was good especially considering that I am not a huge smokes salmon person. My friend invited me over for a sample plate. It has a very fresh lemony taste that is nice and light...nothing to slow you down for something like a nap on a busy day. A day like today!
