Lemony summertime pasta

I love pasta. Fact. It is my weakness and I am well aware of it! I could eat it every day, easily twice. 🙂

I’m aware that since my magic banana ice cream recipe (https://redumbrellachronicles.wordpress.com/2010/08/06/magic-banana-ice cream/), there has been a serious lack of food related posts and this recipe below makes me swoon…..summery and light and lemony, perfect for lunch in the garden and so easy to make. Enjoy!


2 servings

freshly cooked pasta
1 big lemon
1-2 sprigs of fresh thyme
200 ml/ 0,85 cup fresh cream
salt and pepper
extra-virgin olive oil

– Grate the zest of the lemon, put it in a pan with a little olive oil and the thyme and cook on low heat for two minutes.
– Add the fresh cream and cook until it has reduced and has become creamy.
– Add about two teaspoons of lemon juice, begin with one and taste the cream before adding the next, lemons vary very much in taste and strength.
– Stir well, heat up the lemon sauce quickly and mix it with freshly cooked pasta.

Personally I would then sprinkle some Parmesan and rocket on top…….
