Step 1

Cook the pasta in salted water according to package instructions. Reserve 1/4 cup of pasta cooking liquid.

Step 2

In small pot, combine the heavy cream, butter and 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, until thick enough to coat a spoon, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon zest and juice. Place the pasta into a large bowl. Pour the lemon cream sauce over the pasta mixture and toss to coat evenly, adding pasta water if needed to thin the sauce. Stir the parmesan cheese.

Step 3

Add more salt and pepper to taste if needed. Garnish with chopped parsley and lemon slices if desired.

Tips & Variations

I knew I would love this pasta! I made as directed and added a wee bit more lemon juice to get the tang that we like. This is a fast, easy, delicious and so comforting on this cold winter night. Thank you for sharing Marcia!
