Adam saw this recipe on Lydia's Italian cooking show, and he knew immediately that it would be delicious. So, 20 minutes before supper tonight, he asked if I'd mind if he made a side dish. Sure, said I!
It begins with a stick of butter melted in a skillet, and then you add the zest and juice of one lemon. I'd put the zest in first, and after the juice, you must stir it constantly until the mixture begins to thicken. Use a fairly low heat.
It's served in pasta. Adam picked out radiatore pasta, a chunky, crinkly pasta. It holds the light sauce well. We both think it would be even better with a linguini.
caramelized butternut squash (remember? the one we found growing in my mom's compost?) It was the best batch of this yet, because I cooked it longer and it caramelized even more. Delish!!
