  1. This was wonderful! I didn't have fresh lemon juice so used 2 tbsp. bottled and it was still wonderful. I served it with salmon and it was perfect. Thanks for a new way to cook pasta.
  2. We really liked this dish alot, only next time I make it I might double the sauce just because there wasn't enough for the pasta for me. But it was a great dinner thanks!
  3. What a wonderful fresh pasta dish! I made the sauce as written this first time. I can see there is a lot of room for additions to the sauce and the pasta. Coming to mind are bits of smoked salmon, grav lax, parsley and garlic. As always (or very often) I halved the amount of pasta because I like lots of sauce. I used a medium size lemon and served this dish with a slice of grilled salmon and mixed in some thinly sliced zucchini at the last minutes of cooking the pasta. Thanks for a delicious meal Mimi!


Very busy nanny/au pair, working for a very rich and snooty family, in a very large home, in a very snooty village. Just in case my employer comes here, please don't ask where I am from, or I'll be sacked like the last nanny was. ;-) I take care of 4 gorgeous, and darling kids. 3 girls and a boy. The boy is the youngest (and my favorite). They are great children, very, very active. (Hyper) I love to cook. I guess that's a given, why else would I be here. Part of my job is also to prepare meals for the family. The more they like my food, the longer I get to stay. (just a little joke) On my day off, I usually go out to the cinema or some dance clubs with the other au pairs in this town. That's about it I think.
