I love lemon and this pasta was very good. So easy to make and enjoyed the lighter texture of the whole wheat linguine. Think I might use two leeks next time and omit the parsley. Made and reviewed for the Alphabet Recipe Tag Game.
Good mood This dish was delicious and light. We made it with salmon which we put in the oven right when we started to boil the water for the pasta. By the time the pasta veggies were done the salmon was ready. The lemon added a lot of brightness and even lightened our mood! Pros: bright light healthy delicious Cons: NONE
Missing Something This dish was missing something but I am not sure what. It was a nice fresh flavor but I think it needs a vegetable perhaps spinach or mushrooms. I paired this with naked Veggie Chicken cutlets (Quorn) which made a nice meal. It takes a lot of lemons to make a tablespoon of zest 4 or so. Which I didn't like since you are only using 2 Lemons for the recipe. Pros: Fresh flavor Cons: Zest was very labor intensive
Absolute delight! Love! Tangy lemon cheesy pasta. Yes!! Had to purchase a 12 oz box of pasta but didn't use all. Also used a bunch of green onions instead of the leek & chose to keep my garlic in rather than remove. Delish. Cannot wait to belly up to my bowl! Pros: Quick & light Cons: Couldn't find 8oz box of wheat pasta
Great with fish Made this as described and added this strips of yellow pepper. It was delicious with marinated frozen salmon steaks I bought at Costco. Will make for a ladies' luncheon soon. Pros: Easy and versatile
really tasty unique flavor the flavor was amazing! loved the bold lemon flavor! I was skeptical about this recipe but it really turned out great. The only thing I didn't like was the acid in the lemon made the Parmesan coagulate so the texture was a little funny but flavor was amazing. Also don't over cook the leeks otherwise they get mushy and lose some of their flavor. Pros: different Cons: the parmesan coagulated
Bold Lemon Flavor I loved the bold unique taste of this pasta dish. I used 12 oz. of fettuccine and there was plenty of sauce and flavor to accompany the additional noodles. Goes great with fish! Pros: Very flavorful Goes great with fish Different Cons: Takes awhile to prepare
extremely flavourful Lemon taste really compliments the mild leek flavourand the sauce that the cooking water thickens just enough that I used the full 1.5 cups. Of course I used all the parmesan Pros: worth the time to prepare Cons: does not make enough so we had double portions
