- 1/4 cup butter
- Zest from 1 lemon
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Salt and fresh ground pepper
- Grated Parmesan
- About a pound of whatever kind of pasta you feel like (I used spaghetti)
- About 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh basil
Cook the pasta according to package directions. In the meantime, melt butter in small pot on low heat and add lemon juice. Once pasta is cooked, drain and put the pasta back in pot and add lemon sauce. Add the lemon zest, salt and pepper to taste and chopped basil. Put on serving plate and sprinkle with fresh parmesan and a little more zest. Reserve a little of the pasta water to loosen the sauce, if desired.
