This was by far one of the best low calorie recipies I have come across. Only critique: no lemon. Not necessary. I LOVE garlic, and the lemon took away from the flavor. Also I added grilled chicken, DELICIOUS!

I love the flavor! This is a "keeper". I grilled all the veggies and shrimp, though, and they are nice and crunchy. Used Greek yogurt and let everything cool a bit before adding to the sauce to prevent curdling.
Made this pasta dish this evening.. Its delicious! I also added chicken to it... Very filling.
Do not waste your Asparagus on this recipe!
Make the sauce as described but cook your shrimp and bellpeppers together separately, add them to the pasta and the sauce at the end. Grill, sautee or broil your asparagus separately and serve it as a side. You don't need peas at all.
Keep the asparagus separate and you really have a five star recipe!
A great concept. My main advice, grill the shrimp, the peppers (before slicing) and the asparagus. Really!
