When I was grating the lemon to make lemon zest, the entire kitchen was smelling divine due to the fresh fragrance of lemon. This lemon pasta tastes divine too. Make sure to cook the pasta al-dente i.e. do not over boil it. While boiling pasta add salt to boiling water. Salt helps the pasta to better absorb the sauce. Do not break the pasta while boiling and also boil the pasta in sufficient water as too little water will make the pasta sticky.
