Amalfitano Lemon Pasta

Lemon Pasta

If there’s a recipe that literally anyone, any age, can make, it’s this Amalfitana lemon pasta. Though the name sounds fancy as anything with Amalfi in it does, this inspired pasta will bring Italy home to you. All you need are a few lemons. This is the lemon pasta recipe that you need in your life this summer.

Yellow Equals Happiness

Yellow is the color of summer. You know what else is yellow? The zesty lemon color of a pasta inspired by the Amalfi Coast. The Amalfi Coast is a place where you can get lemons in Sorrento as big as your head. The citrusy fragrance of the sun-kissed Sorrento lemons and freshly cooked pasta can instantly transport you to the sunny Amalfi coast. It’s summer on a plate. Welcome the sunshine with this lemon pasta recipe, which will be a staple for your summer, no matter where you are. 


8 ounces (225g) of pasta (linguine)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
Zest of 2 Sorrento lemons
Juice of 1 Meyer lemon
1/2 cup (120 ml) cream
1/2 cup (50g) grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste
Fresh chives chopped, for garnish


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Reserve about 1/2 cup of pasta water, then drain the pasta. 

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the olive oil and minced garlic, and sauté for 1-2 minutes until the garlic is fragrant but not browned. Add the lemon zest and lemon juice to the skillet, stirring to combine. Let it simmer for about a minute.

Pour in the cream and bring the mixture to a simmer. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes, allowing the sauce to thicken slightly. Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese until melted and the sauce is smooth. If the sauce is too thick for your taste, add a splash of reserved pasta water to thin it out. 

Add the cooked pasta to the skillet with the lemon cream sauce. Toss the pasta gently until it is evenly coated with the sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If it seems too cheesy, you can balance the flavors by adding red pepper flakes for a bit of heat.
