I made this lemon linguine recipe when I first saw it and it was a knockout! I had my son over that day and I served it with salmon and it was so refreshing and yummy. Loved it!!

Saw this recipe yesterday & tried it today. Deeeee-licious!!!! I'm not the best in the kitchen but this recipe was easy enough for someone like me. I added raw shrimp when I sauteed the garlic & onions & halved the lemon juice. I'll definitely make this again!

Too lemony. I would cut back on the lemon juice and/or zest by half.
