MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 7, 2011

"I used lemon juice instead of lime (what I had on hand), and mushrooms & summer squash for the veggies. Also ended up mixing the pasta, milk, cheese, and some extra lemon juice (no zest in-house) together, but then added them directly to the shrimp/veggie mixture and mixed everything together. Pretty tasty. Will have to try it w/ lime sometime."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 30, 2011

"I don't eat pasta so I substituted the spaghetti for broccoli & simply sprinkled the broccoli with parmesan cheese. I didn't have snow peas, so I used sweet peas. This was a DELICIOUS recipe!!! I will definitely make this again. It was incredibly flavorful & I think it's relatively healthy. YUMMY!"
