1 lb. spaghetti
Zest & juice of 3 lemons
2-3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
Handful of flat-leaf parsley, leaves minced
1/4 cup olive oil, more as needed
1 cup grated parmigiano
salt & pepper to taste
Bring a pasta pot of water to a boil. Add salt. Add spaghetti. Stir to keep pasta from sticking to itself. When water comes back to a boil it should keep the strands separated. Cook until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water. Drain pasta.
Meanwhile, combine the lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, parsley and olive oil in a large mixing bowl. Add hot pasta. Toss to coat pasta with sauce. Add more olive oil and/or pasta water to moisten if needed. Add parmigiano and mix well. Serve hot.
