Recipe for Lemon Pasta


  • 1 Kg Long Pasta Either Dried Spaghetti
  • 1 Cup Fresh Chopped Parsley
  • 2 Medium Cloves Of Garlic, Minced
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
  • Zest & Juice Of Two Lemons
  • 3/4 Cup Toasted Pine Nuts
  • Salt & Pepper

Cooking Directions

Mix together the oil, garlic, parsley, lemon zest and juice.

Season with salt and pepper.

Add the toasted pine nuts, stir well, and allow to sit for a couple of hours for the flavors to meld.

Cook the pasta in boiling salted water.

Just before draining, remove a small cup of pasta water.

Drain the pasta, and return it to the pot with the lemon sauce over high heat.

Add a little pasta water to prevent it from drying out.

As soon as it is piping hot, remove from the heat and serve.

Scoop the pine nuts off the bottom of the pot to top the pasta, and serve with a wedge of lemon.

Optional: Grilled shrimp are very tasty on top of this pasta too!
