  • Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot and add 2 tablespoons of salt.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat until almost smoking. Add the onion and the red pepper flakes and sauté until soft and translucent, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the jalapenos and sauté for another minute. Add the lemon zest and juice, bring to a boil, and continue boiling for 1 minute. Remove from heat, stir in the unsalted butter and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Drop the pasta into the boiling water and cook until al dente. Drain.
  • Toss the hot pasta into the skillet with the lemon mixture. Return the pan to medium heat and mix well, stirring gently. Add the Pecorino Romano and toss quickly. Transfer to a warmed serving platter and serve immediately.

    My family and I love this recipe. It would be good for a Meat Free Monday meal but I usually throw some grilled chicken in it. Like the other reviewer said before, it is not too hot with the jalapenos in it. The kids gobble it up and have no problem with heat. I love anything lemon. I will post a picture the next time I make this since there isn't one on here.

    Delicious! I made half this recipe and then cut the halved butter in half again to 2T (that was more than enough). I thought this may be too spicy with the jalapeno and red pepper flakes but it was just right. I served this with Tilapia and fresh broccoli and was very pleased with the result.
