Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cook linguine till al-dente
  • In a small saute pan, add extra-virgin olive oil, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes
  • Add lemon juice and a ladle of the cooking water from the pasta to the garlic and oil mixture in the pan, when the pasta has been cooking for about 5mins
  • Drain pasta, add pasta to pan and turn off heat, add lemon zest and cilantro
  • Toss the pasta well with the sauce, allowing it time to soak up the "juice"
  • (Note: You can have the option of NOT using the pan. Just toss in the cooked pasta in the mixture of olive oil, garlic, crushed pepper flakes, lemon juice, and cilantro. Can be served cold, even!)

    I tried this real soon....like tonight. Had it with Greek chicken and broccoli. I doubled the recipe because I knew I would like it and probably eat 1/2. Deelicious! Thanks for reminding me how good this is. The cilantro and red pepper was the crowning touch.
