Lemon on a tree in a wintergarden

Pasta al Limone - and the sun is rising

January 11th, 2019 | main dishes

Pasta al Limone – there is hardly a noodle dish easier to prepare and more aromatic. And the lemons are freshly picked from the tree in our conservatory…

Pasta al Limone - and the sun is rising

Unfortunately, as we know, we do not live in the country where the lemons bloom. But a few years ago we bought a lemon and a lime tree for our conservatory. The lime tree turned out to be a lemon tree, but no matter. Now we call two lemon trees and one calamansi tree our own and enjoy completely untreated citrus fruits from our conservatory.

Pasta al Limone is the perfect dish to harvest the small, yellow vitamin bombs and process them directly. Heavenly!
