    My husband loved it.

    Toni Weidman from NEW PORT RICHEY, FL

    I'm not fond of Alfredo sauce so I switched to a Sun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce. And I used Portobello mushroom/cheese tortellinis instead of ravioli. And, I used more lemon juice. My husband thought it was wonderful.

    Great and Different shrimp

    Catherine Morgan from Great Falls, MT

    This was a good dish, for my husband and myself that is. We have 2 children who didn't care for the combination. 1 liked the noodles and 1 liked the shrimp. We enjoyed the combination and it was great change from shrimp and cocktail sauce.

    Quick and Delicious

    Nancy Current from FEASTERVILLE TREVOSE, PA

    I was pleasantly surprised at how quick, easy and tasty this recipe was. My entire family liked it and it is fancy enough to serve to company. I used bottled Alfredo sauce because I didn't have any fresh, and this recipe was still wonderful. I'll add a little extra lemon juice and lemon zest next time though.

    Not bad...

    Suzanne Stokes from ATLANTA, GA

    I added some white wine and garlic for flavor and still thought this was just okay. I like how easy it was but would use only half the sauce if I made it again.

    5 stars for flavor;5 more stars for easiness!

    judith leaming from DOVER, DE

    Wow! wow! wow! I'd never have believed that something so easy could taste so good. As a Maryland-er, I felt compelled to add 2 teaspoons of seasoning ... flavor AND color enhancer! Good enough for guests!

    Pat Gardetta from OSAGE BEACH, MO

    We had friends over for dinner and I didn't know what to prepare. Like us, they are not meat eaters. This dish was perfect. Besides being delicious, it makes a nice presentation. It's a keeper.

    Very adaptable

    Lynette from

    This recipe is good as written, plus is a good jumping off point for a quick, light creamy sauce for pasta. I have made it with mushrooms and other flavors with good results. I find that there is not quite enough sauce for the amount of pasta called for, though.

    my family loved it

    cheryl heppner from PARKER, SD

    i made this for dinner a few nights ago and my husband and children just loved it there was not a bite left over i have put this in the front of my recipe box and will make this many times.

    Carole Finney from Harrisville, OH

    I have never tasted anything so delicious. I have had shrimp and pasta with alfredo sauce, but the lemon added to it makes it so much better.

    DAwn Grunzke from Forest City, IA

    Ithoughtthis dish was very easy to prepare and put on the table. I just made sure I had everything on hand in case I got home late and I cook whip it up in a hurry instead of going out to eat. It was fast and had a very good taste to it.

    good for the luvin'

    dave from virginia beach,

    My girlfriend lives out of town and came down to visit this past weekend. I served this recipe, plus some extra lemon, with a spring salad with extra baby spinach, and red wine vinegar dressing and a bottle of chardonnay. Needless to say she was impressed.

    Karen from

    This was great and very easy to make. I followed the advice of others and added a little more lemon and a red pepper. I also threw in some mushrooms. Coupled with a green salad and bread this was a great meal. Will make this again for sure.

    something different

    Jill Medina from saugus,ma

    This is a great recipe when your craving shrimp but something different. My guests loved it and it is very simple and quick. I was a little let down and was expecting it to have a little more lemon power ( I even added extra ) I found the alfredo sauce to have the bold flavor.

    Yum Yum

    Maureen from Augusta, GA

    I had two hours notice to fix dinner for unexpected guests. Looked this recipe up, rushed to the store, "cleaned" up the house and served an excellent meal. Something this easy should not taste so good! I served this with a green salad topped with raspberry walnut vinaigrette, garlic bread and wine.

    Restaraunt Quality

    Tania Plawke from Edmonton, Alberta

    I made this dish and added a few red peppers. WOW it was so tasty and easy. It looked like a dish you would order from an expensive Italian Restaurant. I served it with Garlic Bread and a nice spring mix salad. Wonderful, a definite keeper in my recipe book.

    Delicious Choice

    Mercedes from

    This recipe is especially good when you add a touch of Chardonnay into the sauce as well. This recipe is to exquisite!

    Elaine Campbell from Forney, TX

    This dish absolutely wonderful, it taste like something you would be served at a elegant restaurant, just add a salad, wine and cheesecake.

    An Excellent Alternative

    Breila from Dallas, TX

    I don't typically like white sauces, especially Alfredo. They are so boring. But this sauce will wake you up and make you sit up to take notice. The lemon really keeps it a light sauce and doesn't bring it down. Serve this on any kind of pasta -- we used cheese tortellini -- with some great herb bread and a light salad, and you have a dish that will be remembered for some time. Pair it with a nice Zinfandel or Chardonnay and you'll never want to stop.
