This pasta is short and sweet. Easy to make. Easy to love. Its simplicity allows the contrast between the hot pepper and the lemon to take center stage.
We topped this pasta with Romano cheese and thyme. Thyme is one herb that I really ought to use more often. It’s an incredibly delicate herb with a lemon-like scent. Yet, thyme also possesses a tough earthiness as well. This dish is my 54th completed dish from Mario Batali’s Molto Italiano (percentage complete: 16.52%). Onward and upward.
