    the accidental glutton's Note:

    This is a fantastic pasta- it has a strong lemon flavor plus a kick of spice from the red pepper flakes! It's a Rachel Ray recipe & she served it alongside fish.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Salt the water and drop the spaghetti into the pot.
    2. 2
      Heat a large deep skillet over low heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil and garlic and crushed red pepper flakes.
    3. 3
      When the pasta has been cooking about 5 minutes, add lemon juice, a ladle of the cooking water from the pasta and the cream to the garlic and oil. Raise heat a bit to bring sauce to a bubble.
    4. 4
      Drain pasta when it still has a good bite to it, al dente. Add lemon zest and half of the cheese to the cream sauce. Season the sauce with salt, to taste. Add pasta to pan and turn off heat. Toss the pasta with sauce a minute or 2, allowing it time to soak up the sauce.
    5. 5
      Top the plates of pasta or platter with remaining cheese, parsley and basil.

      Happened to see this on TV in a restaurant, (with sound off !) -- and raced home to save the recipe. Have made it twice since lemon is my favorite flavor and pasta my favorite meal ! Last night, added 1/2 butter to the oil, and sauteed some shrimp to add. Served ONLY with garlic bread -- amazing how well the pasta soaks up the liquid. Thanks for posting.

      We love this pasta! It's light & lemony.. a perfect change from the usual heavy shrimp scampi.

      Wonderful recipe. Love the lemon. I don't cook with cream, so subbed in half/half and since I don't do heat very well, I only used half the amount given. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2012. :)
