Lemon Linguini

This pasta dish has the comfort factor of Fettucini Alfredo, with a fresh twist added by the lemon and parsley. It is quick and easy, great with garlic bread and a simple salad, and maybe some chocolate mousse for dessert. Sparkling raspberry water would be a complimentary drink—or whatever you like!

Lemon Linguini
1 Package fresh angel hair pasta
1 Wedge parmesan cheese
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
3/4 C Whipping cream

Cook pasta according to directions on package. In a saucepan, mix together lemon juice, lemon zest, cheese, whipping cream, and egg yolks. Cook over very low heat until slightly thickened. Add salt to taste, and white pepper if desired. Add pasta to pan, stirring to coat.
Garnish with fresh parsley.
