Not sure if I did something wrong but the saute of lemon made the dish really really bitter. On top of that, the flavour of the lemon was also very strong.
Hi Kim. Did your lemons get too brown? That could have affected the taste of the dish. Perhaps next time use zest instead? I’m sorry to hear that this happened!
Very little flavor, so disappointed, and the shrimp was tough.
very good! added a little butter on the noodles at the end (1 T)Great combination of flavors and with simple ingredients I already had on hand :)
This was AMAZING! It will be a regular on my meal rotation! My 4 year old son LOVED the lemon and ate it all up! Thank you for a great recipe!
YUM!!! Only thing we did differently was keeping the lemons in pieces & didn’t eat them. Didn’t really understand what mincing the lemons meant. Also added lemon juice on top. Thank u!!!
The lemon was a little overwhelming. Would consider making again without, or just much less
I made this for dinner tonight. I was delicious. I followed the receipe used onion because I didn’t have any shallots in kitchen. My only complaint had to do with the size of my shrimp and amount of spinach I used. It could use a little more liquid but all in all I will make it again for sure. Did not find any issues with the lemon rind being bitter.
Not a fan of the lemon rind…pasta had nice flavor from the sauce made with the pasta water doubt I would make again
YUK! Lemon zest was over powering. Inedible
thank you for this recipe. I was sick today sneezing coughing hacking but I knew my husband would love a hot meal when he came home today. I made this recipe it was simple quick and delicious and it’s not fried so yay to you and me for being a success today thank you for this awesome recipe
So glad you liked it Rochelle, and hope you feel better soon!
This is the best lemon pasta I’ve ever made. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I used bowtie pasta, which is what I had on hand. I used a Meyers lemon from my tree, and it was absolutely delicious.
I was a bit hesitate to make this dish, after reading the mixed comments… i went ahead… I must say we all love this pasta dish! The lemon is a nice addition and brought the whole dish to a new level of taste with depth.
Thanks for the recipe
I made this tonight. It would have been good but the lemon gave it the most awful aftertaste to the point where we actually could not eat it. Such a shame because I know it would have been great otherwise. Maybe next time I might make it with lemon juice rather than a whole lemon. Thanks all the same. I love trying new things.
Exactly what happened to us tonight! Had to throw it out. Disappointed!
I made this tonight without the shallots and the pasta water , I increased the amount of Spinach and both my husband and son Loved it so much they gave it a 10 – thanks for the recipe. Its been saved for future dinners :) and pinned on my board on Pinterest :)
made it last night, but added a little bit of heavy cream to the sauce (mainly to keep it from drying/noodles soaking up all the sauce for hubby, who came late for dinner). Loved the lemon flavor, though I felt it was a bit on the sour side, so I just added a bit of sugar to balance it and it was perfect afterwards. Definitely a nice change from our usual pasta & tomato sauce routine :)
This was fantastic! I had made shrimp tacos earlier in the week, so I decided to bake a salmon fillet and use it instead. I tossed the salmon chunks with rest of the pasta right before serving – delicious! And I personally thought the lemon was a perfect touch.
I really didn’t like the lemon. I always like your recipes, but this one tasted strange and can only attribute it to the lemon.
I made this last night; it was delicious. I made one small change: I used chicken stock rather than the pasta water. Next time, I’ll increase the spinach to 8-10 ounces. Overall, the dish was really nice, and the lemon was a wonderful addition.
How does one go about mincing the cooked lemon? The Sandie
Put them on a cutting board and use a sharp chef’s knife to cut them finely.
Made this tonite…awesome..just added a pinch of dried chilies..thanks for recipe..Will definitely make it many more times.
I’m so glad you liked it Dorothy!
