Ingredients

  • 1 lemon
  • 150ml best quality extra virgin
  • olive oil
  • 500g linguine
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped mint
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Salt

Method

Finely grate lemon rind and squeeze juice into a bowl. Mix in half the olive oil and leave for 1 hour so lemon flavour seeps into oil.

Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil and cook linguine to al dente. When nearly ready, heat serving bowl for pasta and whisk in lemon-oil mixture, remaining oil, parmesan, parsley, mint and 5 or 6 spoons of pasta cooking water.

Toss cooked, drained pasta in the bowl with the lemon-herb-parmesan dressing, adding pepper and a little salt if necessary.

Serve immediately.
