This was a lovely fresh tasting dish, I used left over roast chicken and lime instead of lemon and soya beans to replace broad beans.

I enjoyed this but added garlic, mushrooms and pinenuts.

Totally agree that is a tasteless dish and won't be repeated.

To bland for my taste buds, this won't be served up again on my dining table.

Very easy to make and everyone liked it, I also used soya beans instead of broad beans.

lovely simple dish, i adapted and used a little double cream with the cooking water, lovage instead of parsley and fresh broad beans.

Very Tasty.

Very quick and easy to make although the frozen broad beans had a tough husk when cooked - put me off slightly but the overall taste was very clean and fresh. Would make again but with different veg.

My family love pasta and we are always looking for new sauces, my son hs already requested that I make this again.

This was simple to make and a nice light pasta dish. The lemon is delicious in the sauce. Would make again.
