Creamy Lemon Garlic Fettuccine




It certainly doesn't feel like spring around here but I can pretend it is by making one of my favorite spring/summer dishes. I love Lemon Pasta. It's so creamy and refreshing and isn't loaded in calories like you find in a traditional fettuccine dish. It's a hit with the whole family!

  1. Oh, this sounds so good! I love the fat free part of it. I am going to make this for my husband and I this week and NOT tell him about the fat free....he loves Fettucine Alfredo (full fat!). Pinned!
