    Cinnamonised's Note:

    Deliciously refreshing with a decadent edge! The combination of lemon and pasta is definitely under-rated. Courtesy of foodblog "Cream Puffs in Venice". The photo I posted is made with fresh home-made pasta, which made it even better!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the cream in a small pot until it's just about to come to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the lemon zest. Set aside for 10 minutes. Drain the cream through a sieve to remove the lemon zest.
    2. 2
      Put a large pot of water to boil; once it comes to a boil add the fettuccine and cook according to package directions.
    3. 3
      As the fettuccine cook, melt the butter in a large pan (large enough to accommodate the fettuccine). Add the lemon cream and bring to a boil; add a bit of salt and pepper (taste to make sure that it's to your liking; add more salt if necessary). Lower the heat and let the cream simmer; it will reduce slightly and thicken.
    4. 4
      As soon as the fettuccine are cooked add them to the cream mixture. Immediately add the Parmigiano Reggiano and toss gently until all the fettuccine are covered in the sauce. As you toss the pasta, the melting Parmigiano and the starch from the pasta will combine to thicken the sauce further.
    5. 5
      Serve the pasta immediately with additional Parmigiano.
    6. 6
      Enjoy!

      I really liked the lemon flavor in this dish. Next time I think I might add more cheese and some herbs maybe. Thanks for sharing!

      This was a nice twist on the traditional fettuccine. I enjoyed this.

      I made this to accompany salmon filets. I too left in the lemon zest, and I added a wee bit more cream because I had just over 1/2 pound of pasta. Delightful flavors. I will make this again and again. Thanks!
