When Life Gives You Lemons...

Make lemon pasta!


Brad walked in with these from our tree. BIG puppies! Hmmmm, what can I do with them? Another lemon cake? Nah, we just had one. I peered in the fridge and decided I could throw a few ingredients together for a lemon pasta sauce. I cooked my FAVORITE pasta: FAT spaghetti with a whole down the center. (I could do a whole blog on the various names for these, but I will call them bucatini.)

I took a scoop (serving spoon) of marscapone cheese, the zest from two lemons, a splash of milk, and a handful of grated Romano cheese and stirred it in a small pan util almost boiling. I added more lemon zest, and a little more cheese, and we had a very tasty lemon pasta!

This is a lovely dish! I wish you would consider entering it in our event called "festa italiana". I know others would love this also :)

Oh my gosh, that looks so good and easy! I'll put it in the rotation :-)


Palma, that looks so good. I love anything with lemon on it, in it, around it.....in Rome in January, I bought a medium-sized jar of lemon preserves mainly because it had a mouth-water slice of sugared lemon on top! I only realized far too late that I paid something like $12 for this jar of jam -- but I was seduced by the lemon.

Sounds delicious. I love bucatini pasta - in fact there's even a restaurant here in Santa Barbara called Bucatini that is really fabulous.


Anything citrus gets my mojo goin'...Key Lime Pie, Lemon Curd, Lemon anything at all, Orange anything at all...I'm so easy!
Ciao ciao,

This is going in my "want to try" folder - it looks delicious! And how amazing to have lemons like that in your yard!
