After a long hot day, this dish came together quickly! I used soba noodles and finished it with a grating of Grana Padano. Will see repeats here for sure. Thanks Bea for sharing.

Very tasty, The hardest part was boiling the water :) Great for a quick dinner. I sprinkled some grated parmesan on top at the table.

I love lemon on just about anything and even my husband was looking forward to having it when I told him about it. My youngest daughter had 2 helpings, and said it was yummy, so this will be seen on our table again. Five stars and then some for this QueenBea!
