No man is lonely eating spaghetti; it requires so much attention- Christopher Morley
This month’s Vegetarian Times had some truly interesting and simple pasta recipes and this, is the adapted version of one such recipe.No stories, just a simple recipe with VT version in red
8oz spaghetti (I used whole wheat, fettucine)
3/4 cup whipped cream cheese (1/2 cup)
2 tbsp olive oil plus extra for the pasta
juice and zest from one lemon
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar (omitted)
salt for the sauce
pepper to taste (I added quite a bit)
Cook the spaghetti according to instructions with olive oil and salt
In a pan, heat 2 tbsp olive oil, cream cheese and about one tbsp of lemon juice- once the cheese is in a saucy consistency, switch the heat off. Add the pasta (I did add a bit of pasta water), rest of the lemon juice, lemon zest, parsley and cheddar.
A beautiful light pasta meal you will enjoy all through the year. Now come on- are you trying to telling me that it can get better than this?!
