Spaghetti al Limone Recipe

Spaghetti al Limone Recipe

Just in case you didn't already know...WE LOVE LEMONS! We have been trying to incorporate them into dishes any way we can! Dave, co-owner at Caputo Brothers Creamery, came up with this delicious spaghetti recipe that incorporates lemon, ricotta, parsley, and Parmigiano Reggiano. The end result? A creamy pasta that is a little sweet and savory at the same time. We all went back for seconds and you will too! Buon appetito!


  • 500g spaghetti
  • 500g Caputo Brothers Creamery Ricotta
  • 10g fresh parsley
  • 2-3g fresh lemon zest
  • 150g Parmigiano Reggiano
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. In a food processor, blend the ricotta with zest, salt, and pepper. If too thick, add some pasta water at the end.
  2. Cook the pasta al dente (remember to salt the water!), reserve 2 cups of the water.
  3. Drain the pasta and return it to the pot (off of heat).
  4. Add the ricotta cream mixture to pasta (add pasta water here until desired creaminess).
  5. Add the parsley and grated Pamiggiano Reggiano and mix well.
  6. Serve immediately with a sprinkling of ground black pepper, more Parmigiano Reggiano, and more zest.
  7. Enjoy!
