Wonderful! I changed the recipe a bit, though, to make it a main dish instead of a side dish. First, I sauteed a bit of garlic in the butter before mixing the sauce. Second, I used penne pasta instead of spaghetti. And finally, I added a cup of broccoli florets. Mmmm, served with garlic toast and a salad, this was wonderful. Oh yes...instead of baking it in the oven (its just too hot for that) I cooked it on high in the microwave 5 minutes, and added a little milk when stirring the cheese in. Simply a fantastic dish, even my husband, the devoted carnivore, loved it.

With a few modifications that suited my tastes better, this was absolutely a five star dish. I skipped the lemon zest and without it this had just the desired fresh, delicate hint of lemon. The baking method didn’t appeal to me. I saw that as an unnecessary step that would just take extra time. I wanted to keep it simple and I wanted the dish to be creamy and saucy, so I simply prepared the sauce, adding some fresh minced garlic to the melted butter, then finished the sauce as directed before tossing it with the pasta (I used pappardelle, a sort of wide fettucine). We really enjoyed this, particularly alongside “Grilled BBQ Meatloaf,” also from this site, and Brussels sprouts with bacon.

This was so good and amazingly simple to make. The pasta has a strong lemony flavor and my family loved it. Even my 16 month old couldn't get enough. I am already wondering what I can add to make a full meal. I think next time I will try adding some broccoli, mushrooms and chicken breasts. This is one we will keep around for a long time.
