Ingredients for Spaghetti Al Limone (with lemon sauce)

For 4 people:
500g spaghetti
Juice and zest of 1-2 premium organic lemons (depending on size)
Fillets of 1-2 premium organic lemons (depending on size)
500 ml chicken or vegetable stock
2 eggs
150g Parmesan
1 bunch of parsley

Preparation for a relaxed cooking session

  1. Gather all the ingredients together and spread them out on the kitchen table.
  2. For the Italian way of life, get a good white wine from the fridge and fill a glass for the cook. Feel free to take a small sip between each cooking session.
  3. Boil about 450ml of chicken stock over a low heat (note: this only works without a lid). Set the remaining stock aside.
  4. Squeeze the juice of two small (or one large) lemons and add it to the chicken broth.
  5. Finely grate the Parmesan and place it in a bowl.
  6. Grate the zest of two small lemons (or one large lemon) with a fine grater and place it in another small bowl.
  7. Cut the lemon fillets. To do this, first cut off the peel generously, including the fruit skin. Then cut small fillets from the lemon flesh (note: cut out the fillets between the lemon skins). Put the fillets in a small bowl.
  8. Pour about 50ml of the chicken stock into a bowl. Add the eggs and beat briefly. Then add the grated Parmesan and stir in with a whisk. Finally, add the grated lemon peel.
  9. Roughly chop the parsley
  10. Cook spaghetti in plenty of boiling salted water according to the instructions on the packet (note: never rinse the pasta! Otherwise the pasta will not be able to absorb the sauce).
  11. Place the pasta in the serving pot and add the warmed 450ml broth. Stir once and then add the prepared lemon/parmesan mixture and mix well. Finally, add the lemon fillets and parsley, mix well again and serve.
