Family Said 10 Stars!!

Made the recipe as written.
Will definitely make again.
With the lemon flavor, shrimp would be a nice addition.

Quick, Easy, and Delicious!

Missing something

Loved the combination of flavors, but found them very mild. It's fettuccine. With lemon. And garlic. Parmesan. Not enough mushrooms in my opinion. Maybe good as a smaller serve as a side to a dish. But not a meal on its own. A decent serve, if serving for 4 as the recipe suggests, but I finished the meal, full belly but looking for something else. Was not satisfied.

Easy, budget friendly

Made this tonight, enjoyed it, so is my husband. Citrus and basil give a really interesting twist. I used wheat angel hair pasta.

Fresh and delicious!

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.

I read what you did with the rehydrating water - while putting the pasta in it and cooking it is ok, don't get tempted to use it raw! Raw shiitake, and I assume uncooked rehydrating water, can cause an awful rash!
