Lemon Pasta

This is a recipe that Ray-Ray has kindly given me permission to put on my blog. 

I thought it was unusual, I love pasta and am always looking for new ideas, this one tastes great.

Linguin or linguini are a form of pasta, a bit flat like trenette and fettuccine, but narrow like spaghetti. So if you can't get linguin, then try it with another pasta.

  • 120ml Olive Oil
  • 200g Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Freshly Squeezed Lemon juice (1-2 large lemons)
  • 225g linguine
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 50g fresh basil chopped
  • 2 tsp. freshly grated lemon zest
  • a few thin lemon slices for garnish

  1. In a mixing bowl whisk together olive oil, Parmesan cheese and lemon juice.
  2. Cook linguine to al dente and drain.
  3. Transfer back to pasta pan and toss linguine with lemon sauce mixture.
  4. Add salt, pepper, lemon zest and basil.
  5. Stir to coat pasta well.
  6. Transfer to bowls
  7. Garnish with lemon slices and  serve.
This will make enough for 2 main servings.
