Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter
two garlic cloves, minced
1 cup light cream, or half and half
1 teaspoon finely minced lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 pounds spaghetti
fresh parsley minced

Directions Step-By-Step

1
in a large skillet, large enough to hold the pasta when cooked, sauté the garlic in the butter until it just begins to turn color, 2 to 3 minutes.
2
Add the cream and the zest and cook over medium heat, uncovered, 3 to 4 minutes, stirring most of the time with a rubber spatula. The cream should thickened a little. Add salt and freshly ground pepper.
3
Cook the pasta, drain it and add it to the sauce. Add one half of the lemon juice, toss the pasta lightly but well, cooking it 1 to 2 minutes over heat. Taste for lemon flavor and add more lemon juice if you feel it needs it. Top with parsley and serve. Makes four servings.
