Lemon pasta


Some days ago taking a look on my old bedroom on my parent’s house I’ve found a book by Giuliano Hazan, The classic pasta cookbook, truly  an amazing book teaching you how to make fresh pasta yourself, as well as most popular italian sauces and a lot of recipes with pasta. And this catch my eye for unknown reasons, maybe because I like to cook with lemon, who knows? The result is really amazing and straightforward to cook, unfortunately it’s not a good idea to eat it every day because it has a considerable amount of fat.


  • Pasta
  • 1 lemon
  • 50 gr butter
  • 100 ml milk cream
  • Parmeggiano cheese
  • Optionally fresh basil and ground pepper

So let’s start adding about 50 gr of butter on pan, better cut in small cubes. When butter is melt add the juice of one lemon as well as lemon zest, cook the butter with lemon for about half minute. Then add about 100 ml of cream milk and cook until the sauce reduces to less than half of it’s initial volume stirring some times.

Reserve the sauce and cook the pasta in boiling water with a bunch of salt. When pasta is cooked drain it and add to the pan back to fire stirring to mix all well. Finally add some grated parmeggiano cheese and optionally fresh chopped basil and ground pepper.
