We are a big fan of lemon at our household, so this dish we have made quite a few times. It could easily be our new favorite recipe. It is super easy to make & absolutely delicious. I cannot rave enough about it!
It comes from Eva Longoria's new cookbook, Eva's Kitchen, and in it she says that she would go to New York and eat at Serafina Restaurant. She chef gave her the recipe and she transformed it into a lighter, creamier version!
You will need:
1 cup beef broth
1 cup heavy whipping cream
juice from 2 lemons
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
grated lemon zest from 2 lemons
1 pound fettucine or linguine
boneless, skinless chicken breast (optional)
In a large skillet, pour the beef broth and whipping cream and stir to whisk together. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer gently until it is reduced by a 1/3, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. Stir in lemon juice, butter, and lemon zest.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Then add pasta and cook noodles to al dente, about 8 minutes.
Drain the noodles and immediately add them to the lemon sauce in skillet. Let stand uncovered 15 minutes so pasta can absorb the sauce.
*Tip: When we make this we like to grill some chicken & then slice it over top *
