Lemon Mascarpone Spaghetti

A silky, sumptuous dish, that's easy and quick to prepare. One for lovers.


  • good quality pasta
  • mascarpone cheese
  • grated parmesan or peccorino


  1. Boil the pasta until it is deliciously al dente and pour off the water.
  2. Shake it loose in the colander and add the mascarpone. This creamy Italian cheese is actually more like a thick double cream and it can be substituted with thick cream or crême frâiche.
  3. Let it rest a few moments to run through the pasta and then grate in the zest of a lemon to give it a bit of zing.
  4. It’s lovely to eat fresh, but easy enough to heat up later if you feel peckish.
  5. To Serve:
  6. Add some grated parmesan or pecorino.
