I enjoyed this recipe. It was light, fresh, easy to prepare. I took heed from previous reviewers and halved the lemon juice and zest and it seemed appropriate. I didn't have enough fresh shiitakes so I subbed about half dried and added the stems and rehydrating water to the pasta water. I think next time I'll try a bit of sage and maybe some other types of mushrooms.

EatingWell reader Sidra Goldman of Washington, D.C., contributed this fresh-tasting whole-wheat pasta recipe. Lemon zest accents the basil beautifully.

I made this pasta once before and gonna do it again tonight! Its a light and flavorful pasta. I'm a big fan of lemon and garlic. The basil can be over powering so add alittle at a time to get the right amount for your liking!
My wife and I have tried many many recipes from Eatingwell and found all of them superb - except this one. I don't think the lemon went well at all with the mushrooms etc. It was too dry and too lemony. Rather than waste it, I added spaghetti sauce to it and managed to eat half and our friendly crows got the rest.
Oh boy howdy! REALLY good! I was surprised! Lemon and garlic really go well together. I always have the temptation to use TOO many spices, but I stuck mostly to the recipe and voila! Delicious food was manifested. The only thing I did a little different: added zucchini, squash and a little more lemon juice. I also used just regular mushrooms since I didn't have those beautiful portabellas on hand. Anyway! I recommend it! And it was healthy! Yum!
This is delicious! A really good recipe for the summer. I just made this for my boyfriend and I and we were both surprised at the good flavor. Most people said this, it does have a lemony taste but personally I love it. I did add a little more parmesean cheese as a topping for each individual bowl and this came out divine. Also, I don't like the taste of wheat so I used the tri-colored veggie wheat fettuccine which tastes really good because it isn't overbearing. And I couldn't find any shiitake mushrooms so I used white mushrooms. Seriously, this is a really good dish that tastes sooo good. Even my boyfriend who is a hard core meat eater liked it.
