Lemon Linguine

Well it's been a while since I've posted any recipes so today I wanted to post a Nigella Lawson recipe that I like, that has many different versions available elsewhere.  No picture, because I haven't made it recently...

Ingredients (serves 2)
200g linguine
juice and zest of half a lemon
4 tbsp of light single cream
50g parmesan cheese, grated
1 egg yolk
freshly ground black pepper

  • Cook the pasta according to instructions.
  • Meanwhile combine the cream, parmesan and egg yolk and mix well.  Slowly add the lemon zest and juice to avoid curdling.  
  • Drain the pasta, and stir in the sauce until the pasta is well-coated and the sauce is melted.  Add a little water if absolutely needed.
  • Serve immediately with freshly ground black pepper.
