Fresh, light, and reminiscent of the Mediterranean.

I loved this dinner, my family loved this dinner, and guests loved this dinner.

After some of the reviews, I made the sauce and TASTED it first before I put it on the shrimp and vegetables just in case I didn't like it. That was not a problem as I like tart and lemony food. And it very definitely reminded me of light dinners in Italy and Greece.
I also thought the peas were actually a great addition, as they offset a bit of that tartness.

I made fresh grated Parmesan and ground pepper available, as well.

Very quick, lovely taste, filling, and satisfies pasta cravings

The sauce is weird but not terrible. I wouldn't make it again.

refreshing and yummy

I have always loved a white rich cream sauce but am trying to be a bit healthier. This is such a refreshing tangy pasta. Its great hot or cold. After reading comments I used regular yogurt instead of low fat. Do NOT use greek yogurt, it is much thicker and the sauce will not turn out perfect and creamy. My boyfriend loved it. I will definitely make again. I thought it had lots of flavor, was different, and delicious!

I love this recipe - amazing the difference we all have in taste

Wow - upon reading the repeated reviews for this I'm surprised - this is one of my favorite recipes - I love the tart flavor. Perhaps it is important to make with good pasta and like one reviewer said - regular yogurt - not low fat - I love the freshness.

easy and quick to make
