This recipe was fantastic. It is not a creamy alfredo. So If you are looking for that..look elsewhere. It is light, lemony and wonderful! We are not fans of heavy cream sauce and this was a great alternative. I will serve this for guests. And in our opinion the lemon was perfect.

An awful recipie. It calls for way too much basil, The parmesan is a bad addition, as is the lemon. My dogs were the only ones to like this.

Delicious, but same as the other reviewers, I toned down the lemon zest and lemon juice to fit my tastes. Wonderfully simple and quick. I'll definitely be making again.

Made this dish last night for my partner and myself. Followed the advice below of using half of the grated lemon rind and half of the lemon juice that the recipe initially called for. It turned out great! My partner used to be a chef by trade and even he enjoyed the flavours :)I will definatley make this again.
