    Even lacking fresh parsley and subbing the parm with colby jack, this was a tasty meal. Definitely get a bag of lemons for this dish, though. Two was not enough.

    It tasted wonderful! I used a splash of white wine for added fancy. I wished I used better Parmesan but ... I still ate the **** out of this pasta!

    Delicious! My husband had three helpings! (Rare for him.) I cut the lemon juice in half (juice from 1 lemon instead of 2) and that was just right for us. Didn’t add any pasta water ‘cause the sauce’s thickness was fine. Added some fresh broccoli to the linguine for the last five minutes of cooking.

    It was easy to make but the lemon overpowered the flavor. If I ever decide to make this again, I’ll definitely use less lemon juice and replace some with chicken broth or something.

    Good.. but I would substitute a little white wine for some of the lemon juice.
