Lemon pasta

Lemon fettuccine with sauteed garlic lemon shrimp.

1 package of fresh fettuccine

1/3 cup olive oil

1/3 cup grated Parmesan

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 3 lemons)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon lemon zest

1/3 cup chopped fresh basil leaves

Put your pasta water on to boil. In a bowl whisk together oil, parmesan, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Toss in your fresh pasta. Warm olive oil in a non stick skillet and saute the shrimp with the seasonings you prefer. I used garlic and lemon juice. I put in some lemon zest at the end. Reserve about a cup of pasta water. Drain pasta,return to pot and add sauce, lemon zest and basil. Toss. Plate and top with the shrimp.
