    Used actually garlic instead of the powder and had great flavor! No zest needed, just one fresh lemon.

    The pasta was a little bland I would suggest adding something to spice it up

    -1 Star because the meal was a bit dry, changed it up a bit for more sauce and it tasted delicious like that.

    Not too shabby but definitely missing something. I added chives, cilantro, onion powder, and red pepper flakes for color, flavor, & spice of course. (Also used a pound and a half of shrimp just to make sure I get shrimp in every bite 😉) In addition, I added white wine as I sautéed the shrimp in the butter with the garlic, chives, and cilantro. Because I’m on no special diet I used salted butter. Glad I made these changes because I fear following the recipe exactly as is would leave you with bland pasta. Mine came out grea. I would make this again with the above-mentioned modifications.

    I added a few more seasonings. Doubled the recipe for more sauce. Will make again. Also added stir fry veggies. Had cooked shrimp on hand, so added last.

    It was really good! I used already cooked shrimp so this came together very quickly. My 4 & 2 year old ate three helpings of the noodles! (No shrimp of course, but hey I'm not complaining!) 10/10 would make again

    Yummy! I added at least triple the lemon zest, used 3 cloves of garlic and about 1/4 cup of heavy cream. It was very very good! My husband, who is an persnickety Englishman, and not very fond of American food, just raved about your recipe. Thanks so much!!!
