A recipe from “The River Café London” inspired this light, fresh pasta dish. We boil the spaghetti in a scant amount of water, then use some of the starchy liquid to help form a sauce that clings lightly to the pasta. Lemon zest and juice and a generous amount of fresh herbs add brightness, grated cheese offers savory notes and a combination of extra-virgin olive oil and butter lends the pasta just the right amount of richness.

I love any dish that combines pasta and lemon! This was an easy win except for the parsley... I just don't like it very much so I used basil instead of parsley, and 1/4 cup chopped chives (but would use less next time). The red pepper flakes are a MUST and perhaps some additional lemon juice. This recipe can adapt easily to personal preference.
