Spaghetti a Limone

Spaghetti a Limone

I went out to dinner with a few friends last weekend and we went to an Italian place downtown. I think three of us ended up ordering this Pasta, and it was delicious! But all I could think as I was eating was, “I can make this!” Which, if you know me I say pretty often lol… but this time I actually did make it! Yay for me!

Spaghetti a Limone sounds pretty fancy, but really it is just spaghetti with lemon juice! Anyways, I will admit that my version wasn’t quite as good as the restaurants… but it was my first try… and making it at home cost a dollar or two per plate, versus the $18 plus tax and tip at the restaurant.

The ingredients you need are lemons, spaghetti pasta, spinach, parmesian cheese, butter, olive oil, garlic salt, and garlic. Sorry about the picture, the water was boiling, and had to take the picture quickly! Lol

I used the whole pack of spaghetti, which was a 900 gram pack. After I put the pasta into boil….

I squeezed the juice from 2 lemons, and grated the set from the outside of one of the lemonsIf I had fresh garlic, (which I didn’t, but would strongly recommend) I would sautĂ© the garlic and spinach in a frying pan with a couple tablespoons of olive oil.

When the pasta was finished cooking, I added some garlic salt, a couple tablespoons of butter and a couple tablespoons of olive oil. I added the cooked spinach as well.

Then stir it around well, add the lemon juice, and top with some grated parmesan.

It was really good! I would also think about making it with rapini, or even broccoli.

Next time, I will also make sure I have fresh garlic, and I might add a little more oil and butter.

But overall, I thought it was pretty darn good!

  1. Sounds delicious and uses basic ingredients that you would have on hand. Other than garlic! LOL. Actually now I peel and freeze garlic in my little containers. It grates easily from frozen. Thanks for sharing!
