This simple dish may have few ingredients, but it boasts bold, bright flavors. Many versions of include cream, but we preferred to use a little butter and some of the starchy spaghetti-cooking water; this gave the pasta a saucy consistency and light creaminess that didn't mute the freshness of the lemon. Feel free to switch out linguine for the spaghetti and adjust the lemon zest and juice to your taste.

Tip

Don't cook the pasta until al dente. Drain it when it's a minute or two shy of al dente; it will continue to cook in the skillet.

Delicious! It is a bit spicy (at least for me) but I feel like that worked with the lemon. Will definitely be making this again.
