Lemon Capellini



Lemon Capellini

I fixed this with barbecue chicken, but I think it would be excellent with grilled shrimp and garlic bread.  It’s delicious and very quick and easy.  1/3 cup juice gave it a light lemon taste.  If you like it more lemony, use more lemon juice.  1 medium lemon is 3 tablespoons juice.

  • 1 lb. capellini (angel hair pasta)
  • 1/2 lb. unsalted butter, melted
  • Zest and juice of 2 lemons (1/3 cup juice)
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Drizzle some olive oil in a large pot of boiling salted water, add the capellini, and cook al dente.  Drain quickly, leaving a little water with the capellini.  Quickly toss the capellini with the melted butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt.

Serve immediately.

6 servings.
