Creamy lemon pasta is super quick and easy to prepare and comes together in less than 20 minutes. It only uses a few basic ingredients but is still packed with flavor and very satisfying.
- When cooking the sauce, keep the heat on low to medium. High heat can cause the cream to separate or the sauce to curdle. Stir continually to emulsify the sauce. - Grate the Parmesan fresh before making the sauce. Pre-grated cheese may contain anti-caking agents that can affect the texture of the sauce and prevent the cheese from melting smoothly.
