Leek & Lemon Linguine

January/February 2012

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (63 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.

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.

really tasty, unique flavor

the flavor was amazing! loved the bold lemon flavor! I was skeptical about this recipe but it really turned out great. The only thing I didn't like was the acid in the lemon made the Parmesan coagulate, so the texture was a little funny but flavor was amazing. Also, don't over cook the leeks, otherwise they get mushy and lose some of their flavor.
