Wonderful recipe! I made it last night for my husband and it was quick and delicious. Based on suggestions here, I left out the lemon and added some cut up chicken breast, minced garlic and fresh parsley. It tasted wonderful and was easy to prepare when I got home from work.

This was a really great recipe. My husband and I agreed that it had a touch too much lemon in it. The next time I make it I'm going to cut out 2/3rds of the lemon. Also to add a bit more bite to it I substituted 1/2 of the parmesean with romano cheese.

The addition of lemon made the parmesan cheese clump up into little clots, and the sauce was thin and watery. I had to strain the fettucine and start over from scratch. I will definitely NOT be making this recipe again.
