Leek & Lemon Linguine

January/February 2012

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (78 votes)

This simple pasta recipe has bold lemony flavor. It’s nice with a salad for a light supper or serve it along with seared fish, shrimp or chicken. Vary it as you please—add a bit of crumbled goat cheese, chopped rinsed capers, shelled edamame or thin strips of yellow bell pepper.

Good mood

This dish was delicious and light. We made it with salmon, which we put in the oven right when we started to boil the water for the pasta. By the time the pasta + veggies were done, the salmon was ready. The lemon added a lot of brightness and even lightened our mood!

bright, light, healthy, delicious
Missing Something

This dish was missing something but I am not sure what. It was a nice fresh flavor but I think it needs a vegetable perhaps spinach or mushrooms. I paired this with naked Veggie Chicken cutlets (Quorn) which made a nice meal. It takes a lot of lemons to make a tablespoon of zest, 4 or so. Which I didn't like since you are only using 2 Lemons for the recipe.

Fresh flavor
Absolute delight!

Love! Tangy lemon, cheesy pasta. Yes!! Had to purchase a 12 oz box of pasta but didn't use all. Also, used a bunch of green onions instead of the leek & chose to keep my garlic in rather than remove. Delish. Cannot wait to belly up to my bowl!

Quick & light
Great with fish

Made this as described and added this strips of yellow pepper. It was delicious with marinated frozen salmon steaks I bought at Costco. Will make for a ladies' luncheon soon.

Easy and versatile

Loved this pasta! I didn't have any chives, but it turned out great anyway. Nice fresh flavor from the lemons and is a really light pasta dish - will be perfect in the summer.
