Why I Love This Recipe
The weather has finally started to warm up and the recent sunny days inspired me for something light for dinner. As a result, steamed cod with lemon angel hair pasta & broccoli was perfect for dinner.
Here is Giada's recipe for lemon spaghetti:
Ingredients You'll Need
1/2 pound spaghetti or angel hair
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 3 lemons)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tablespoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon cup chopped fresh basil leaves
Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk the oil, Parmesan, and lemon juice in a large bowl to blend.
Drain the pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid. Toss the pasta with the lemon sauce, and the reserved cooking liquid, adding 1/4 cup at a time as needed to moisten. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with lemon zest and chopped basil.
