Spicy Lemon Pasta


  • 1 pound spaghetti or fettuccine
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • zest and juice of 2 lemons
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan (optional)


Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to the package

Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add the lemon zest, garlic, and jalapeños and cook until lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the pasta, lemon juice, peas, salt, pepper, and remaining oil and cook until heated through, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the Parmesan, if desired, toss well, and serve.
