Gremolata Pasta

Gremolata pasta is a very simple pasta dish that you can make in less than 15 minutes. This makes a great lunch or light dinner, but it specially tastes great as a side dish for osso bucco or braised short ribs. There are many versions of gremolata pasta: some have tomatoes, others anchovies, but to me, this recipe seems to be the best one because it's so simple and very fast to make.


  • 1 pkg. fresh linguini (9 oz)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup freshly Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic, minced
  • Minced zest of one lemon or lime
  • Salt and pepper, and
  • Red pepper flakes to taste
  1. Cook the pasta in boiling, salted water according to package directions, or al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients in a large pasta bowl. Once your pasta is done, drain well and

add the hot pasta and toss to coat.

Serve immediately!
