Ingredients

1 pound pasta (fettuccine, linguine, angel hair)

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup finely minced fresh parsley

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 lemon, zested and juiced

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. (If using angel hair, stop just short of the al dente stage.) Drain and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat, then add the olive oil.  Add the parsley, garlic and lemon zest and stir. Throw in the drained pasta and cook, tossing and coating it in the mixture, so that a few of the pieces get a little bit of a pan-fried texture to them, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the lemon juice and some salt and pepper and toss again.
