How to make it
- Cook spaghetti in a 6 to 8-quart pot of boiling salted water until 'al dente'.
- While pasta cooks, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until hot but not smoking, then cook scallions and garlic, stirring occasionally, until scallions are softened and garlic begins to turn golden, about 5 minutes.
- Transfer scallion mixture (except for a few tbsp for a topping to finished dish) to a blender and add zest, salt, pepper, remaining olive oil, and 1/2 cup pasta-cooking water, then puree until smooth.
- Drain pasta in a colander and return to pot.
- Toss pasta with scallion puree, cheese, and salt and pepper to taste over moderate heat until pasta is well coated. Makes 6 main-course servings.
- Make sure to serve with really crusty Italian bread and flavored oil or sweet creamery butter on the side.
