Angel Hair Pasta and Lemon Parsley Sauce

READY IN: 30mins

This sauce, traditionally served with veal shanks, also compliments Angel hair pasta, which is very fine and must be served immediately after being cooked. The sauce, Gremolata, is a lemon rind, garlic and parsley condiment.

Excellent side pasta, I used whole wheat rotini instead of angel hair and only used one lemon's zest, and it turned out fine. Would go well with fish I think.
