  • Cook's Note:
  • One of my favorite Italian meals is lemon pasta. I just love the crisp and refreshing taste of it. It's super easy to make and it's versatile in that it's delicious with either chicken or shrimp. I love that it's nutritious too.
  • Can also be covered and refrigerated, if making ahead.
  • This dish gets better when refrigerated for a few hours to allow flavors to come together.
