Lemon-Wee Shrimp Pasta

Pasta and shrimp. Two of my family's favorite foods. That's good news for me because they're relatively inexpensive (money saving tip_ buy pre-packaged frozen shrimp in your grocery's freezer aisle) and I can keep them on hand for quick recipes just like this one. I'm pretty sure that we eat shrimp or pasta in our house 5 days a week, so combining them in this recipe just made sense. This is one of those dishes I like to make on the nights that I'm exhausted (uh, that would be every night), and need something that is super easy to prepare, will be a hit with the family and looks totally gourmet.

    Can you use chicken or veg stock if you dont have clam juice? Or is there something else you recommend?

    Thanks
