Description

This pasta dish will surprise you – it’s easy, it’s rich in taste and it’s cheap.

– And what I really like about this dish is, that it’s only three ingredients: parmesan, thyme and lemon. 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 14 oz Spagetti (400g)
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil (or your own homemade lemon oil)
  • 4 oz freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh Thyme
  • Juice from 2 Lemons
  • Juice from 1 Lime
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. To begin with you cook the spaghetti until al dente.
  2. Next you mix the remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. However, if you have made your own lemon oil and like to emphasize the taste of lemon, I can recommend switching it out with the suggested plain olive oil. But that is up to you and your tastebuds.
  4. Finally you add the cooked pasta to the mix of the remaining ingredients.
  5. You do not have to heat it up, just mix it together.


Notes

Serve with a piece of freshly baked baguette, some extra parmesan and a glass of chilled Chardonnay.

If you have made your own lemon oil and like to emphasize the taste of lemon, I can recommend switching it out with the suggested plain olive oil. But that is up to you and your tastebuds.
