  • Looks delicious! Thanks for sharing

  • Thank you! I just put the pescatarian version on my menu for today. This lovely dish will be a perfect start in into the weekend.

  • That looks delicious, I think I will have roasted cherry tomatoes with mine!

  • Wow! Jeanette is not only an amazing knitwear designer….

  • I love lemon in almost anything. Sounds perfect.

  • WOW! This looks/sounds so good – thank you for sharing1

    • Made my version for supper tonight – it was light and delicious with plenty of leftovers for later this week! Thanks for sharing!

  • Why does the recipe call for 2 unwaxed lemons but only talks about using one?

    • In the second paragraph–in case upon tasting the emulsion, you would like more lemon juice: “It should be a lovely balance of oil and lemon; if it’s too acidic, add a little more oil; if it’s not zingy enough, add more lemon juice.”

  • Looks delicious! We have more hot weather coming so cook once/ eat twice will be perfect. Also- nice of you to include both measurement systems. Someday we may get our act together in the US to go metric…

  • This looks very delicious, both versions!

  • We would call this a pasta salad where I come from. Canada.

  • I love lemon pasta. I make a very similar version that uses soften butter instead of olive oil. You add the lemon juice, zest, and herbs and squish it all together. I am definitely trying this olive oil version. I just bought some nice oil at one of the old school stores in the Bronx. Guess what’s for dinner tonight?

  • This sounds awesome … making this tonight!

    • It’s sweeping Iowa! I made this for dinner tonight! I used sweet potato noodles for my gf daughter. Super recipe. Thanks! Lucky I bought enough ingredients for a repeat performance tomorrow night.

  • I make a similar version and use shrimp as well as some cocktail sauce. The horseradish in the sauce gives it a bit of zip. My guests love the fresh taste of lemon, tomatoes, etc.

  • Sounds great! This is a regular summer recipe for us with GF spaghetti and shrimp, but she ups the game with the extra lemon and zest. (Not sure if an unwaxed lemon exists in NJ though). Wish I could print out the recipe without taking screen shots. Anybody know how?

  • This sounds so good – I do a bastardized version of spaghetti (or whatever pasta) and lemony clam sauce with 4 ingredients and cooked pasta. I heat olive oil, a clove of minced garlic, lemon, and canned clams (yup, the canned ones taste perfectly fine and are so easy for quick summer meals). I sprinkle with parmesan and minced parsley if I have them. I like mine extra lemony. The family thinks this simple meal is extra fancy, so it’s a win!

  • I can’t believe Jenners is gone! And thanks for the recipe.

  • Delicious. Made it for dinner. Substituted some anchovies for the smoked salmon.

  • OMG!
    Thank you!
    Making my version tonight!

  • Thanks so much for a recipe which suits those of us who *assemble* more than cook.

  • We can all use fast easy delicious recipes more often. Thanks!

  • I made this last night as a test run for my book group next week. It’s easy and delicious. As suggested, I made enough for four, so the two of us will enjoy it again tonight. (Bonus: today I am casting on for a cotton sweater.)

  • I made this on Tuesday night with all the ingredients and it was fabulous…did use regular spaghetti, not wheat. Cold leftovers for lunch were just as good. Tonight I’m preparing the original version…just pasta, cheese, basil and sauce. This recipe is a winner!

  • Sounds wonderful! I have a favorite lemony angel hair pasta recipe which it easy too: break up the angel hair into smaller pieces and toss it in melted butter, then add hot chicken broth and cook covered until the pasta is done and the broth mostly absorbed (about 10 minutes) Serve it with a squeeze of lemon juice and some grated parmesan and fresh ground black pepper. Comfort food at its best!

    Thanks for your recipe – it is on my menu for hubby’s birthday dinner this weekend!!

  • Just made this tonight. Delicious!!! Thank you.

  • Thia looks divine as it’s 90 F/32 C this afternoon and cold pasta sounds delish. Thank u for sharing
