Creamy Lemon Pasta

Ingredients

for 2 servings

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup heavy cream (120 mL)

  • 8 oz pasta (225 g)
  • pecorino cheese, to taste

  4. When pasta is cooked al dente, drain from water and add to cream.
  5. Toss pasta to evenly distribute sauce, plate, and grate as much cheese as desired over the top. Salt and pepper to taste, and serve.
