Lemon Pasta minus the Caviar

This is my last Barefoot Contessa recipe to blog...I have loved trying some new ingredients, and even loved having the permission to splurge on butter! :) Thanks Ina!
I didn't have the money or nerve to try the caviar, but the pasta sure looked easy. I used fettuchini. It seemed a bit naked without caviar, so I chopped up some cooked shrimp and mixed that in. I couldn't stomach a 1/2 pound of butter, so I did only one stick, then added a little of the starchy pasta water and a splash of white wine. It turned out really well! I loved the strong lemon flavor. All my tasters gave it a thumbs up! I will definitely make it again.
