Join Molly in the Test Kitchen as she makes Pasta al Limone. This classic lemon sauce recipe has a lot of fat and a lot of acidity, so don’t be shy with adding salt and taste as you go. It will likely require more than you think to strike that perfect balance.

Just because your pasta is not al dente does not automatically mean it's over cooked

Mrs. Molly, probably heavy cream is too much frequent in your recipe. In this case lemon juice (acid) fights against milk based cream.Cream, butter, cheese: uhm! Basically, "Mediterranean diet" makes poor use of bad fat. Let say: lemon zest and juice, pepper, e.v.olive oil, peperoncino, one slide of crunched garlic and a touch of parsley would have been perfect (and healthy). More color? a scratch of curcuma and, beside, a stem glass of scented rose wine

You can finish serving up but annoyingly and very American you bastardise the English Language. "Black pep" and "Delic"? Shame on you!

"Yo fam so we heard you liked fat so we made a creme based sauce with equal part of butter and we added parmigiano on top because the sauce was too thin. Oh yeah we added lemon too cause we subtle"

I made Ina Garten's version which is even easier, just 2 lemons and their zest and 2 sticks of butter. It was great, but next time I'll try it with cream.

I make this a lot, but with no cream or garlic, just tagliatelle, lemon zest (maybe a little juice as well), pasta water and Parmesan. Much simpler, much quicker, lighter and imho better!

I've made this recipe countless of times now BUT tonight, i used a mixture of parm and romano cheese. Plus, roasted some chopped walnuts and peas (salt, pep, garlic powder, olive oil) until crisp to put on top And HOLY WOW. A+. You can't go wrong with this pasta recipe- no matter what you add or do to change it up

hello everyone i just made this recipe and i have some thoughts: - DELICIOUS - i added twice the amount of lemon bc one wasn’t enough lol it was very lightly tangy and i needed more - i also added shrimp cooked in butter and lemon juice because why not - did i say delicious already because it was DELICIOUS - the leftovers are still great and the sauce doesn’t curdle or separate when reheated as long as you make sure you properly melt the parm when you first cook this - again, i reiterate: Delicious™

Matt One time I was cooking for my friends and they were judging me for how much salt I put in my pasta water. It was then I learned I knew how to cook much much better than they did 🌚
Matt 2 months ago
It was actually an appropriate amount of salt lol The idea of throwing one pinch of salt into a giant pot and thinking it will impart any flavor is kind of ridiculous. It should pretty much be like your pasta is cooking in ocean water

"Me and my cousin" there is such a thing as grammar even when cooking :-( Next whilst living in France the term was "monte au beurre" this girl needs education badly. America sucks at cream it's crap bad and rubbish sorry but that's how it is. So when I lived in Italy, I've cooked all over the world which is fun, the water is important because the starch in the water thickens the sauce it also makes it glisten adding fat helps but it's really not needed. Always remember the pasta is the star not the sauce and it's funny most people don't know that either :-(
