  • 1 cup of Parmesan cheese
    Cheese
  • 12 ounces of dry penne pasta cooked according to package directions
    Pasta and Rice
  • salt to taste
    Spices and Seasonings

Steps

  • Cook pasta according to package directions. In a medium sized sauce pan over medium-high heat melt butter, and add heavy cream. When the mixture begins to bubble stir in Parmesan cheese, and stir until well blended, and the cheese has melted.
  • Add in lemon juice and lemon zest and stir. Season with black pepper and salt to taste.In a bowl add cooked pasta and pour sauce over cooked pasta, mix well. You may wish to garnish your pasta dish with some additional Parmesan cheese, parsley, or even a couple of capers. This dish does not re-heat well, so plan on enjoying this dish in one setting. I love to serve this up with some fried chicken cutlets and a glass of white wine.
