Spaghetti Grana Padano with pink peppercorn and Amalfi lemon
. Serves: 4 people
. Preparation time: 15 minutes
. Variety: Pasta
100g Grana Padano Riserva, grated
1 tsp pink peppercorns, crushed
1 tsp pink peppercorns, whole to garnish
1 Amalfi lemon (peel zested, and juice reserved)
PreparationCook the spaghetti in a large pan of salted boiling water (for 100g of pasta you need 1l of water).
In a separate pan, melt the butter, add three quarters of the lemon zest and the crushed pink peppercorns.
When the pasta is almost cooked (and is al dente), use a pair of tongs (or drain the pasta but keep some of the water) and put the pasta in the pan with the lemon and pepper. Gradually add a little of the pasta water, (no more than 200 ml) and stir energetically.
Take off the stove, add the lemon juice, sprinkle the Grana Padano Riserva on top and then garnish with the remaining lemon zest and whole peppercorns.
