There are hundreds of creamy lemon and garlic pasta sauces, so I kind of went with what I had really. It is not as rich as you might think and would be delicious with some smoked salmon, chicken or maybe prawns.
It is also ready in a matter of minutes. MrsDrWho and I have decided to only cook Angel Hair pasta, because who has time to wait ten minutes?? Not really, but we're going with it in food emergencies.
I made half the recipe and sprinkled a little finely chopped basil over the top. I would have had baby spinach if there was any!!
Creamy Lemon and Garlic Pasta Sauce serves 4
- a little butter or olive oil
- 4 cloves of garlic, finely sliced
- 375ml cream
- zest and juice of 2-3 lemons
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- cooked pasta, enough for 4 people
Since this recipe is so speedy, you can set the pasta boiling and then whip up the sauce.
Fry the garlic in a little butter or oil for a minute, or until it is fragrant. I mashed it a little with a fork to help it meld with the rest of the sauce.
Add the cream and when it is almost boiling, add the lemon zest and juice.
Cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes and then add the cheese. Stir till melted. Gently fold the pasta through the sauce and serve immediately. I like pepper, so I did add a good two or three grinds at the end.
