DIRECTIONS

  • Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil.
  • Add salt and spaghetti.
  • Cook for 12-14 minutes.
  • In the meantime, prepare the sauce: First, remove any thick or woody stems from the herbs and discard.
  • Chop herbs finely- you should end up with about 3/4 cup of chopped herbs (a little more or less won't matter).
  • Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over a medium heat.
  • Add garlic and cook until just beginning to colour.
  • Remove saucepan from heat immediately.
  • With the saucepan off the heat, add cream, butter, lemon rind and juice, herbs, salt and pepper and stir to mix well.
  • When the spaghetti is cooked to your liking, drain it well then add the drained spaghetti to the saucepan (the one with the sauce in it).
  • Return this saucepan to a low-medium heat and toss with two forks to combine the spaghetti with the sauce.
  • Cook gently for a minute or two until the sauce begins to thicken and most, but not all, of it has been taken up by the spaghetti.
  • Serve in bowls, drizzling over any remaining sauce.
  • Top with parmesan cheese.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Serve as is or with a crisp green salad and a nice cold glass of dry white wine!
