Meyer lemon shines in this comforting, simple dish.

  • 4 Quarts Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Plus 3/4 Teaspoon Kosher Salt (Divided)
  • 3/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Meyer Lemon Zest
  • 3 Medium Shallots (Minced)
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 Pound Dried Fettuccine
  • 2 Teaspoons Fresh Meyer Lemon Juice
  • 3/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper (For Garnish)
  1. Bring 4 quarts water to boil in large-size pot. Add 2 tablespoons kosher salt.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil and lemon zest in large-size skillet over a medium heat. Add remaining kosher salt and shallots. Cook 5 minutes until shallots are softened. Whisk in cream and simmer 2 minutes.
  3. Cook pasta in boiling water until al dente. Reserves 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Drain. Add lemon juice to noodles. Toss well to combine. The pasta will absorb the juice.

  5. Divide among 4 bowls. Garnish with freshly ground pepper.
