I had no asparagus, so I used zucchini. Absolutely fabulous. My husband called it "exquisite!" and not very difficult either. Yum!
Made a slightly different variation tonight. Didn't have asparagus, so used green beans instead. Sauteed the garlic and peppers first in part EVOO and part Coconut Oil. Then added the green beans, peas, a pinch of salt, some black pepper and some wine. I added only 2 teaspoons of Plain Greek Yogurt, parsley, a small amount of lemon juice, and a bit more pepper. I topped the pasta with all of it and added Parmesan cheese. Excellent! I took a picture of it and added it to my Instagram account at "just_living_loving_life" if you care to see the final product.
Me and my son liked this though my boyfriend wasn't a fan, if you don't like the taste or find its missing something a little parmesan cheese ontop makes it over the top delicious!
What a mixed review recipe! I really enjoyed it! I've never seen such a controversial recipe. Seems like you love it or hate it! I read through some comments and decided to use 50% reduced fat creme fraiche instead of yogurt. everything else was exactly like the recipe. It was delicious and a perfect summer-time meal. I shaved on some parmesan and added extra black pepper and for me, sprinkled on some chili flakes. I would make this again for sure! Pros: Easy, healthy, summer meal
Delicious! I made this dish and I love that I didn't have to do anything else but make the sauce. I did substitute the shrimp with chicken because my boyfriend is allergic to shell fish. So while the pasta was boiling i took 1oz chicken breast and chopped it in 1 pieces. Heated up canola oil in a skillet and cooked it through then put it off to the side. At the end I added it in with everything and it was amazing!!!! Pros: Easy, quick, amazing

This was good! This was really good, although I added more garlic per reviews. My husband can't do yogurt so I substituted it with 1/4 c white wine & 1/2 c plain soy milk then I thickened it by adding 3/4 teas xanthan gum (added 1/8 t at a time) until desired thickness. We enjoyed this very much and thought the wine and garlic was so delicious! Perfect light meal for summer with angel hair or winter meal with different pasta. Pros: Flavorful due to wine & garlic Cons: Added more garlic & substituted with wine
Delicious and uniqueThis dish was amazing and a new favorite for my husband and I. I added extra garlic and a little more salt along with a pinch of red pepper based on the other reviews. We loved it! I'm making again for dinner tonight!

I liked it (except for the asparagus), my husband didn't, but he's pretty picky. The cook time is right on the money, so I liked that its a quick & easy meal. I would make it again if he would eat it. Pros: quick
Lovely Quick and Easy Dish! This was incredibly easy and good. I was a little hesitant because I wasn't sure what to expect from a "yogurt sauce" but I was pleasantly surprised! Followed the recipe exactly with the exception of buying a bag of "steam in the microwave" veggies that I added at the very end and using Ronzoni Garden Delight spaghetti for an even more veggie filled meal, next time I make this I will however, leave out the asparagus [personal preference]. The garlic wasn't overpowering, it had a strong lemony flavor and was a tasty healthy summer meal! I served this with a lovely Mediterranean Salad and it fit perfectly. Def a keeper in my home. Pros: Healthy, Flavorful, Quick, Easy, Satisfying
Delish! This was super tasty and SO easy! I made a few minor adjustments based on the reviews: -used 3 good sized cloves of garlic -added a few dashes of hot sauce to the sauce -didn't use red pepper (personal preference!) Perfect for a quick weeknight dinner, will definitely be putting in regular rotation.
Made "as is" the first time Made this last night for the first time and followed the recipe almost perfectly; I left out the pine nuts. I really enjoyed the brief cooking of the vegetables and shrimp in the pasta water. I think I would have zested the lemon and used maybe 3/4 of the recommended amount of lemon juice. I like the addition of more herbs that others have suggested. I would also throw in some extra garlic and a little zing of red pepper flakes for a spicier version. This recipe for 2 made us 4 servings and I happily packed the leftovers for lunch. Already sent a copy off to my best friend and my sister. Pros: Great one bowl meal for two. Cons: Balancing flavors based on taste.
Great dish! I really enjoyed this. It was easy to make, and was very light. I didn't change the recipe except to double it, and the leftovers were great the next day. Don't leave out the pine nuts!
This dish is pretty good. Slightly bland. I feel that it needs a bit more garlic.
