Creamy Lemon Garlic Fettuccine

I know winter just began, but I am already craving sunny days and warmer weather.
Even though it's not warm outside, 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!
