This pasta with lemon sauce and fried sage is the quickest dish to prepare and it's absolutely delicious. The combination of sage and lemon is a real hit. The lemon sauce gives the pasta a fresh touch and the sage adds a crisp note. In one word: yum!
When it comes to this dish I suggest you make the noodles yourself. They taste so much better than store-bought and are pretty easy to make. If you have a pasta machine, it's time to use it. In case you don't have one, don't worry. You can use a rolling pin.
Before you jump into the kitchen to make this dish I suggest you read carefully this blog-post. The recipe is easy but there are some tips you should know before you start.
Pasta: make it or buy it?
Personally, I think there's nothing better than fresh, homemade pasta. If you have time, I recommend making it yourself. I used my delicious homemade spinach pasta for this recipe and I recommend you do too! You can click here and check out the recipe.
Of course, if you don't have enough time, you can use store-bought pasta. If you're vegan, make sure they don't contain eggs when you buy them.
To make the lemon sauce, you only need a few minutes and 5 ingredients:
- Olive oil
- Sage leaves
- 1 lemon
- vegan parmesan
- Pasta cooking water.
How to make the perfect vegan lemon sauce
As I mentioned before, this is a quick and easy recipe. Therefore, we cook the pasta and make the sauce at the same time.
First, we bring a pot of water to a boil. Then we add in one tablespoon of salt and stir in the pasta.
Next we start making the sauce. We heat the oil in a large saucepan. Once hot, we add the sage leaves and fry them until crispy. Then we set aside ⅓ of the sage leaves. Next, we add 1 cup of pasta cooking water, the juice and zest of a lemon, and 2-3 tablespoons of vegan parmesan. We simmer the sauce for 2-3 minutes until creamy.
Once the pasta is al dente, we drain it and add it to the sauce. We mix everything until combined, top the pasta with the crispy sage leaves and serve it immediately.
How to reheat pasta leftovers
If there are any leftovers, don't throw them away! Put them in an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator. Reheat the leftovers within three to four days.
To reheat the pasta, put it in a pan, add a dash of water and cook it for 3-4 minutes on medium heat until hot.
