Wonderful recipe! I made it last night for my husband and it was quick and delicious. Based on suggestions here I left out the lemon and added some cut up chicken breast minced garlic and fresh parsley. It tasted wonderful and was easy to prepare when I got home from work. Read More

The addition of lemon made the parmesan cheese clump up into little clots and the sauce was thin and watery. I had to strain the fettucine and start over from scratch. I will definitely NOT be making this recipe again. Read More

This was a really great recipe. My husband and I agreed that it had a touch too much lemon in it. The next time I make it I'm going to cut out 2/3rds of the lemon. Also to add a bit more bite to it I substituted 1/2 of the parmesean with romano cheese. Read More

Excellent recipe although for me the recipie seemed bland so I added garlic and onion. Next time I will add more cheese (maybe Romano) to give it a little more bite and flavor. Read More

Sorry but this recipe was definetly not a keeper.. It was very very grainy was very bland no flavour at all. And the lemon was incredibly strong.. I had to add a whole bunch of spices and stuff to make it taste okay.. I think I will try a different recipe next time.. Thanks for your effort though. Read More

Very easy to make but a bit bland. I used a pinch of garlic powder salt and thyme for flavor. Also I grilled some chicken and tossed it with the pasta sauce. I used evaporated whole milk instead (only thing in the cupboard) and the sauce was creamy. Made some homemade garlic bread to go with it for a hearty meal. Read More
