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!!!!
Doubled the recipe and between 5 people it was gone in 1 sitting! I may use a little less lemon juice next time.
Nope! I love the vegie & shrimp combo in this but the sauce adds a funky tart flavor. Don't ruin the good veggies & shrimp
