WOWWWWW! This sauce sounds delicious on pappardelle, many thanks for the great idea! I always made it with risotto or spaghetti, but never on pappardelle, thanks a lot again. Ciao from Rome - Italy :-)

Guilio. Risotto. That sounds delicious. So do you use Parmesan instead of the Manchego?

your sauce is divine!!!
I don't eat much meat... but would like to try it with paparadelle egg noodles! I believe is a good one!

This is nice since I am a great fan of pasta. I can use this sauce one of these days.

Gabriella True said...

Gattina and Charles. You will love it. Really Butter and Lemon and Chives and Cheese? What is not to love? But honestly I think these lovely egg noodles are a great combo with these flavors. And it is super easy which is always a plus in my book.

I was going to write exactly what you wrote in the comment above. Lemon, butter, chives and cheese. What a combination!

Ruth said...

And how did you know it's exactly what I've been craving - you must be psychic!!!

Thanks for sharing.

Gabriella True said...

Kalyn, great minds think a like.

Ruth - yes, I am pyschic. Except for the fact that every one is always craving butter and carbs. So I don't think I could make a career out of my pyschic abilities just yet.

I am going to try this recipe tonight... though I don't have Manchego, so I'll just use plain old parmesan.

Thank you.

(ps. No kids, not technically married, but I get what you mean by reluctant housewife. A hill is to climb, a man is to look after.)
