350g spaghetti pasta
A few lemon leaves
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated
Zest of 1 lemon
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
1 — LEMONS
Wash and peel the lemons. Place peels, leaves, and 2 lemons cut in half in a pot with 5L of water. Heat to 60°C using a thermometer. Steep contents at room temperature until cool and strain.
2 — SPAGHETTI
Place spaghetti in a pan, add lemon broth to cover, and bring to a boil, stirring carefully at first to avoid breakage and then frequently to prevent sticking. Cook until pasta absorbs all the liquid.
FINISHING & SERVING INSTRUCTIONS
Remove spaghetti from heat and add a tablespoon of nutritional yeast, the grated parmesan, some lemon zest, a splash of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
Artisanal spaghetti releases natural starch, making it a great combination with the lemon’s sweetness and acidity, while Krug Grande Cuvée 171ème Édition complements the pasta’s unique texture with a vivacious and elegant bubble.
