Eat Beat: Tagliolini al limone

May 19, 2012 |  8:00 am

Today's Eat Beat features a pasta recipe from our Culinary SOS column. Reader Janie Orenstein from Pacific Palisades wrote:

The lemon pasta at Angelini Osteria on Beverly Boulevard seems remarkably simple. My attempts at re-creating it have been remarkably underwhelming. Can you get the exact measurements and ingredients for this memorable comfort dish? The restaurant describes it as "Tagliolini al Limone with Lemon, Cream, Parmigiano-Reggiano and Basil." However, there is obviously a specific method as to how the kitchen gets it to come out so balanced and tasteful.

We loved the simplicity of this dish: Fresh basil and a touch of lemon are infused with a little heavy cream, which is cooked down just until it thickens, and is poured over pasta. Topped with fresh-grated Parmesan and fresh-cracked pepper, it makes for a remarkably easy but elegant meal! You can find the recipe here.
