“This was a tasty spur-of-the-moment creation. The sauce is sort of a hybrid between lemon-butter and carbonara. I ate it served on pasta with chicken, mushrooms, and broccoli, but it can go with any white pasta dish. Also, when I create dishes, I have a habit of eyeballing the amounts of ingredients, so the measurements are approximate.”
