Angel Hair Pasta and Lemon Parsley Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by GREG IN SAN DIEGO

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.
