Tagliatelle con aglio e limone

This is a really easy recipe and filled with flavours. It is most convenient to make when you come back from a trip and realise you have very few ingredients at home, as it happened to me a few days ago.

All you need is high quality pasta, some garlic, a lemon (or a lime), dried herbs, black pepper, olive oil and good Parmigiano.

For two servings 
1- Cook the pasta per instruction.
2- In a pan, fry four to five garlic cloves sliced for a few minutes in olive oil.
3- Add one lemon or one lime (as in the photo) cut in very thin slices (make sure you take away the seeds). Let it all fry gently in medium fire until the garlic slices take on a golden colour. Add some dried herbs in the last few minutes along with freshly ground pepper.
4- Drain the pasta, place in a large bowl and top with the garlic-lemon mix and all the olive oil. Toss well.

Serve with freshly grated Parmigiano. Optionally, you can add some Peperoncino to give it a slight kick and more colours.
