Notes

This recipe comes courtesy of Barilla.

Serves4 to 6

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Barilla spaghetti
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • 2 fresh lemons
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil, chopped

Instructions

  1. Juice the lemons to yield 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice. Grate lemon peels to yield 1 tablespoon lemon zest.
     
  2. Whisk the oil, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, 3/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper in a large bowl to blend. Set the lemon sauce aside.
     
  3. Meanwhile, Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.
     
  4. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Add the spaghetti to the lemon sauce, and toss with the basil and lemon zest. Toss the pasta with enough reserved cooking liquid, 1/4 cup at a time, to moisten.
     
  5. Season the pasta with more salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to bowls and serve.
