I have been craving sour food lately. Today I wanted to eat pasta for lunch, then I thought about a pasta dish that is sour. Then I cooked this Lemon Pasta. There are many recipes for different versions. I decided to use Butter and Garlic. I nearly added Soy Sauce to it, but I didn’t. I would try it next time. I already know this dish could taste good with it.
1 serving Long Pasta *Linguine, Spaghetti, Fettuccine, etc.
Salt for cooking Pasta
20g Butter *OR Olive Oil
1 clove Garlic *finely chopped OR minced
Zest of 1/2 Lemon *grated
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
2 to 3 tablespoons Cream *OR Salted Water that has been cooking Pasta
Salt & Black Pepper
Herb of your choice *e.g. Thyme, Parsley, Mint, etc.
- Cook long Pasta in boiling salted Water according to the instruction. Today I used Linguine.
- When Pasta is almost cooked, heat Butter and Garlic in a frying pan over medium heat. When Butter is melted and Garlic is aromatic, add Lemon Zest and Juice, and remove from heat.
- Add Pasta and Cream (OR Salted Water that has been cooking Pasta), and mix to combine.
- Season with Salt and Black Pepper, add some grated Parmesan and Herb of your choice. Today I added Thyme.
