I really liked this! My husband was thrilled with it until I told him (when he was finished) that it was made with yogurt, not cream ;) I sauteed the pepper, shrimp with some garlic as others suggested and would definitely recommend it. Omitted the asparagus only because I didn't have any. My 12 year old didn't care much for it while my 2 year old inhaled the pasta! It was even better the second day!
We made this just as the recipe stated. We liked it but didn't love it and our kids (8 & 3) didn't much care for it except for the shrimp (and the asparagus for the older one). I loved how quick and easy it was to make, especially with putting everything in one pot to cook. I was happy with the way the veggies were cooked but felt the sauce needs 'tweaking' a bit. Just a bit - sour or something. Will look at all of the suggestions again.
I think I would saute the garlic - odd that it was uncooked. I would also add a bit less lemon juice. We didn't find it salty. I would like to also add a bit of grilled chicken to make it more filling, but that would also add to the amount of time. Like the idea of a bit of paprika and cayenne pepper to add a bit of zing to it.
I don't eat wheat but would substitute quinoa spaghetti; however the carbs are much higher.
Can't wait to make this wonderful recipe.
