Pasta with Mascarpone and Meyer Lemon
This delicious vegetarian pasta dish is quick and attractive, with minimal clean-up. A hit with family and guests. The freshly cooked pasta is tossed in fragrant Meyer lemon sauce, made creamy with Mascarpone cheese. Color comes from vibrant, blanched baby spinach and fresh basil; and a satisfying crunch is courtesy of toasted hazelnuts. (If Meyer lemons are not available, you may choose to add a 1/2 teaspoon of sugar to the sauce.)
