Why I Love This Recipe

I was looking for a pasta recipe the other day and found this one on a French cooking site. So I tried it tonight and it was delicious.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 lb tagliatelle
Zest of 1 orange
8 leaves basil, chiseled (I used dried)
2 to 3 tbsp Mascarpone cheese
2 tbsp grated Parmesan


Cook pasta according to package direction.

In the meantime, prepare the sauce: in a bowl, combine the orange zest, basil, Mascarpone and Parmesan.

About a minute before the pasta is done cooking, take about 3 tablespoons of the water and stir in the Mascarpone sauce.

Drain the pasta, mix in the sauce and serve immediately.
