Review This Recipe
The entire family loved this recipe. I was easy and quick to make and tasted like a restaurant made meal. I have a picky eater, she didn't eat the shrimp, but she loved the sauce and noodles. We have made it twice already. Because the boys really like seafood, we added 2lbs. of shrimp, it doesn't take away from the flavor at all - just lets the boys feel like its seafood night. Thank you for the recipe.
Great taste, quick fix!
The recipe was a cinch! Like one of the other reviewers, I agree that the sauce wasn’t as thick as I would have liked. If you want a thicker sauce and don’t have time to let it sit, I recommend using 1/2 the can of broth and adding more to your preferred consistency.
This dish was delicious and very light! I substituted the fettuccini with linguini instead, and used already cooked shrimp. Because of this, the sauce didnt get to cook for long because I didn't want to overcook the shrimp. The sauce was very watery. But I noticed later, if the sauce sat for a while, it got thicker. So the leftovers were even better!
Easy & Good
I made this recipe with dehydrated onions and garlic powder substituted in, and added sauted mushrooms along with more lemon juice and pepper... and it was delicious. Quick and easy to make, and served with a green salad and bread it made a lovely, nice meal worthy of guests. The friend I made it for raved about how good it was. Also kept well for lunch leftovers at work the next day.
After reading the other reviews I decided to give this recipie a shot and it turned out delicious! I recommend this tasty dish!
It was a Hit!
I have made this dish several times for different people and they all loved it. I served it with a romaine salad and garlic toast. It was easy to make and was really tasty. I will be making this again.
Adding to Lemon Garlic Shrimp
I too found the original recipe somewhat lacking. I found the addition of the Feta cheese and the olives an interesting supplement but I also sautéed some mushrooms with the onions and garlic. This added yet another flavor and texture to this dish.
Excellent - but---
I had enough for 2 meals so with the leftovers I added some reduced fat sour cream, sliced black olives and crumbled feta. It was much creamier and a little more interesting.
This was a delight to make, quick and simple and light. My husband thoroughly enjoyed it. However, I felt there was something missing. The flavors hit both ends of the flavor scale, it hit the front of the tongue with sharp lemon flavor and the back of the tongue with subtle shrimp flavor. I think when I make it again I will saute the shrimp in the garlic, onion, salt, pepper and throw in a pinch of crushed red peppers, marry the flavors and let the lemon enhance the fettuccine. All in all it was a very pleasant and fresh meal.
Very good and light!
This was delicious and very light.....not like a heavy alfredo sauce. I added peas to the recipe to make it a little more exciting. Otherwise, it was delicious. I served it with garlic bread for dinner.....YUM.
Thank you for a wonderful & quick meal that's not only delicious,but good for you!! I'm going to try next time to add mixed veggies to the sauce instead of a side salad. Definitely a keeper for my roll-a-dex!!!!!
I made this recipe for my husband and he loved it. He said that he thought he was eating a dish from the Olive Garden Resturant. I must say it was wonderful.
I can't say enough good about this recipe. I changed nothing, and it was devoured!
My kids and I made this for fathers day and everyone devoured it. Simple quick and easy to make with wonderful flavoring. All the kids ate it up. I made mine with a combination of spinach and regular fettuccine and it added color which made the dish gorgeous
One that everyone loves!
This was easy, delicious, and not as heavy as an alfredo (a good thing). I did use regular dry pasta and garnished it with extra parmesan and diced tomatoes. It was so good even my 2 picky kids finished their meals! Will surely make this again!!
