What Are You Eating Now?


I love lemon and lemony dishes very much. This evening I will go for tagliatelle with lemon. It will be ready under half hour, so I enjoy cooking it a lot. Helps me to save my time for other things because I dislike spending much time in the kitchen:)

Look what I need for it:
400 gr tagliatelle + zest of 3-lemons + juice of 1- lemon + 1 tsp olive oil + 50 gr creme + parmesan + pepper and salt

Here is how to cook:
Cook tagliatelle in boiling salted water until al dente, then drain. Warm oil olive in a sauce pan. Add the zest and cook low for 2 minutes. Mix in the creme, boil and add the lemon juice. Stir well and boil again. Did cream start thicken? OK, now time to season with some pepper. Add salt if you wish (I never use salt in my dishes.) Mix in the plenty of parmesan. Cook another one minute or so. Put the drained pasta and mix gently.

Serve immediately on a warmed dish. I like to sprinkle some more the zest of lemon and parmesan over the pasta, optional of course.

You see.. it's simple. easiest. quickest. lemony. creamy. very refreshing. luscious. incredible yellow. and perfect for going light. Welcome spring with fresh lemons:) Now what are you eating?

[ limon = lemon
file = string bag ]


  1. The lemon dish you describe sounds so refreshing. I will have to google and find out what tagliatelle is to see if I can make this. What am I eating? sad to say I just finished a pizza for one out of a box. I had to get milk and such at the grocery store and had been craving pizza, so I succombed and bought a packaged one. It was not bad for a prepackaged item. Best pizza I ever ate was at a little kiosk just outside the Vatican in Rome. I can still feel the warmth of that day and sat on a bench and enjoyed "people watching". :-)

  2. It's pasta!! I thought the name sounded familiar. :-) I can make this!! Just need to buy the ingredients. Can't wait to try this!

  3. Nihal, pasta (all kinds and all recipes) is my favourite dish, but I've never eaten the tasty tagliatelle with lemon: surely it would be an absolutely new flavour for me.
    Have a very nice day :-)
