I used some of the pasta water to loosen the sauce made with low-fat crème fraiche and used thinly sliced smoked ham and sliced spring onions in the dressing. Easy, quick and tasty, but go easy with the lemon.

Nice recipe with a subtle lemon tang. I wasn't sure about it at first as I found it quite dry and bland, but I added a few splashes of milk and some salt and pepper to the left-overs and it improved dramatically.

Thought this was awful. I always try recipes twice, as long as they are not too expensive - however it was just as bad. Will definitely not make again, and this has put me off using lemon in cooking.

I thought this was quite a tasty dish, it was quite filling but satisfying! I had the problems with the peas mixing in as well, just had to remember to spoon them on at the end!

I found this too thick and stodgy and the combination of the huge amounts of creme fraiche (despite using less) and the lemon was unfortunately too bitter for us!

Lovely recipe, i've made this twice both with cream cheese the first time as it was all i had and creme fraiche. Both are gorgeous. Really nice pasta dish with a lovely summery feel with the lemon and garden peas which give it a really fresh taste! I serve with Poppyseed baguette and salad! Gorgeous and really simple, my kind of cooking! :)

Why does it say "You can swap mascarpone and crème fraîche for low-fat cream cheese and fromage frais" when there is no mention of mascarpone in the recipe?

I loved this, will definately be making again. I had no creme fraiche so used cream cheese instead. Was a little thicker but the lemon cuts through and the peas taste lovely with it! Really quick (my kind of cooking with two llittle ones to run after), and looks pretty nice for friends coming round for lunch! God, i love this site! x
