I didn't have the penne pasta so just used egg noodles and it was still delicious. My husband loved it and asked me to make it again. I used the large shrimp that were already cooked.

I tried this dish but modified using my homemade pesto sauce instead of the lemon....very good! I will definitely try again and maybe follow the recipe this time - which is something I hardly ever do.
