Well, i made it exactly the way they told me to and i found it to be a little tangy/tart but not enough. Although the people i made it for liked it, so i'll give them the recipe, but i was not a fan. i found it to be really bland, and although pretty to look at boring. However i must say i was quite relieved to see how many people made substitutions in the reviews. i think i'll try the recipe several more times with their changes. thanks reviewers!

substituted 8 oz can of cream of mushroom soup and 1/2 cup of lactaid (didn't have yogurt) and added paprika and a bit more garlic. left out the lemon juice. DELICIOUS!! very flavorful. will make again!
This was great- I used green beans instead and a little grated parmesan.
This was pretty plain when I was done, and I stopped at 1.5 tbs of lemon juice because it was about to become too much. So I added 1/4 cup cilantro and a bit of basil to taste. It worked perfecty, and was very good. If you find your sauce too liquidy, boil off the liquid until the sauce sticks to the pasta and until there is none that sinks to the bottom. Although I like asparagus, I think something else, like broccoli or green pepper would work better in this recipe.
Used rotissere chicken from grocery store instead of shrimp. Also added some low sodium non-fat chicken broth. This really helped cut the "yogart" taste. Also added a lot more cooked garlic. My family is from the south and loves good food! They actually thought this was a cream sauce!!!!
