Make tart little nests for sauteed meats or vegetables by tossing hot pasta with a tangy cream sauce flavored with lots of lemon juice and citrus zest. Nestle the fillings into mounds of pasta for a charming presentation.
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
- 1 cup beef broth
- 10 ounces uncooked pasta
In a sauce pan or skillet large enough to hold the pasta when it is done, combine the butter, cream, and beef broth or bouillon and simmer over medium heat until reduced by about half. Add the lemon juice, lemon and lime zest and set aside.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. Toss pasta with sauce; serve.
